Vol. VII. NEW YORK, JANUARY, 1S76. No. 1. 


By Charles B. Moore. 

The old English tutors advised their students that home education might 
be improved or perfected by travel. If the tedious movements and short 
distances which then made a man a traveller were beneficial, can the rapid 
and extended journeys of the moderns be useless ? If a summer jaunt to 
Saratoga or Niagara was interesting, healthful, or fashionable, recently, what 
shall we now say of a trip to Palestine, China, or Alaska ? .Milton 200 
years - ago went from London to Italy. Sir Thomas More 150 years 
earlier went to Calais and to Cambray, and even to Antwerp ; not farther 
than with us to go to Philadelphia or Washington. They saw and learned 
on their journeys much which neither their teachers nor their books could 
get into their craniums at home. They agree with man}- others in saying 
so, and we have travelled enough to be able to believe it. Our country- 
men are the greatest travellers in the world. Without books ur imperfect 
books, or books not read, travel is almost the only means of knowledge 
upon topics of importance. But what is the effect at home ? What was the 
effect of the old crusades upon the countries which profited by them ? That 
has been described, and is not now our stud}'. But what is the effect 
of so many going to and coming from, everywhere ? What will be rhe effect 
upon our chosen place, of the emigrants by the 100,000 landing at our 
port, and staying here or spreading over the country ? Must we prepare for 
ten times the number ? Will not our example become a habit, and be 
sure to catch the million? Will any one be content to stay at home 
work? Will the auri sacra fama ruin all? Or will the Tartar- come ? We 
must study this with care, and we can deal best with striking examples 
not so remote as the crusades. For a modern character let us tdkejokn 
Ledyard, the traveller, and consider him the pattern of a modem, ambi- 
tious country lad, whose life we should study in order to judge how a 
feeling of desertion by friends and perhaps of injustice, a thirst for knowl- 
edge, and a passion for adventure by travel, took possession of him, and 
may affect the youth of the present day, and in order also to io\a\ some 
estimate of probable results. The Life of Ledyard by the learned Professor 

2 John Ledyard, the Traveller. [Jan., 

Sparks is doubtless the best, although he could appreciate onlv a part. It 
has been read by many, and will bear reading more. Excepting the lives of 
great public men, such as Washington and Franklin, it has been one of 
the most popular with country boys, and one of the most suggestive. It 
was written by a devoted son of Connecticut. It fails to tell how much the 
traveller was connected with, or owed to this State ; and on this point it 
belongs to us to fill in some details. It is but slightly genealogical. The 
Morgan Genealogy, in the Library of our Society, gives some account of 
the Ledyard family. His grandfather, John Ledyard. born in Bristol, Eng- 
land, the old seat of commerce, the home of Cabot, after visiting London, 
abandoned his household to seek his fortune by travel ; came to Southold, 
Li L, in 1 717, and became first a teacher and then a trader there, a com- 
petitor, assistant, or successor of the first L'Hommedieu, the successful 
merchant. He was a young traveller and well educated. He was pros- 
perous in business and presentable in manners and person, and he married 
a daughter of the Judge Benjamin Youngs, grandson of the Rev. John, one 
of the chief men of the place. Southold was too small and on too narrow 
a strip of land to bear much competition, and the selfish rulers of New 
York undertook to force dealings by forbidding trade with Connecticut, 
and thus injuring the country and themselves. He removed in 1 72 7 to New 
London, or to Groton, adjoining it, in Connecticut, and thence afterwards 
to Hartford. And he had a large family of children. 

His eldest son, John, the father of our traveller, anxious to be active and 
to see the world, became a ship-master. He had a deed from his father of 
land at Groton, which was lost or destroyed. He engaged in the West 
India trade. As a result of that hazardous occupation, he died at the age 
of 35, and his family did not retain the land at Groton. He left a widow 
and four children, of whom John, the traveller, was the eldest, born in, 1 75 1. 
She, the widow, his mother, married when 18 years of age. was the 
daughter of Robert Hempstead of Southold, the lawyer, justice, and judge, 
and the presiding officer of patriotic public meetings, who owed much of 
his prominence to the fact that he married another daughter of the same 
Judge Benjamin Youngs, his preceptor. 1 Thus, both on his mother's and 
grandmothers part, Ledyard the traveller was a descendant of the noted 
first English clergyman, who made the colony now State of New York his 
home. The Rev. John Youngs, the emigrant and distant traveller, when 
travelling was difficult and dangerous, came with household and followers 
from the most eastern points of England, Southwold and Great Yarmouth, 
to one of the eastern points of our State, at the beginning of its settle- 
ment. He was of an old commercial family, well known at Bristol. 

The mother of Ledyard, to whom he owed much for his best qualities, 
has been described as a lady of many excellences u of mind and charac- 
ter;, beautiful in person, well informed, resolute, generous, amiable, kind. 
and above all eminent for piety and the religious virtues." " The educa- 
tion of her children was the absorbing object of her thoughts and exer- 
tions." But John, her eldest son, by old. English rules, would be heir-at- 
law of his father and grandfather. He was sent, 'or the grandfather al 
Hartford sent for him, and he must go. He was badly exposed to impress- 
ments at Southold. He early left his mother, and appeared at liar::' 
under his grandfather's care ; who was probably too old and too busj 

1 Another daughter of Judge Youngs married Ebenezer Prime. He left no son. He died in 1743 
and letters of administration were granted to the three sons-in-law, Prime, Ledyard. and Hempstead. 

1876.] A Biographical Sketch. ^ 

look very closely after the active and curious boy. His mother, in 1765. 
when he was fourteen years old, took a second husband, Dr. Micah Moore, 1 
of Southold, an educated and practising physician, descended from the 
eariy settler, Thomas More, of Southold, and Martha Young, his wife. She 
had other family cares devolve upon her, and, with a large family, survived 
her second husband, and lived until 1805. John Ledyard, thus without a 
father and away from his mother — she having a second husband and his 
grandfather a second wife — attempted to complete his common-school 
education at Hartford. His cousin Isaac, afterwards the noted M.D., was 
there with him. His grandfather became infirm, and made arrangements 
for distributing his property among many descendants ; not allowing John 
the old English advantage of having all the land, or a large share, as 
heir-at-law, nor even giving or confirming by his will to John the land 
which John's father had used in his lifetime. All those surrounding the 
aged and infirm man at Hartford were practically interested against the 
strange boy on this question. But they did not read the will to him. We 
have dim accounts, and each can imagine the household arrangements at 
pleasure. John, leaving school, found himself a clerk or law student in 
the office of a lawyer at Hartford, who had married his father's sister. How 
much of a scrivener or student he became we know not. This suited him 
not long. If the dates given are right, his grandfather was then living. 
The president of the new college knew him well, and invited him to send 
his grandson. At the age of 19, with narrow means, "few friends, and no 
definite prospects," having an imperfect education for the legal profession, 
young Ledyard was started off, in a sulky, for Dartmouth College, then in 
its infancy. It was say 120 miles up the Connecticut River, and then on 
the borders of Indian territory. One of the foreign languages studied was 
the Indian, and all the foreign students were Indians. Ledyard says they 
were a race of Tartars — great travellers — and the Tartar language was the 
oldest. No one can safely deny its antiquity. The idea which ruled, and 
by which funds were collected to found the college, was the preparation of 
Indians, as missionaries to convert the Indians. But the fur trade scarcely 
escaped the notice of any one, for Hartford and the Connecticut had 
derived wealth and importance from furs. It also was thought of, that 
intelligent white men who could speak the Indian language might aid in 
extending trade and commerce in large territories occupied by Indians, or 
might aid in securing furs and the fur trade, or, perhaps, in making new 
Indian treaties, purchasing land inexpensively, and enlarging empire peace- 
ably. If the old grandfather, parting with the boy, did not tell him this, it 
Was because it was unnecessary. Both knew it. The leading idea — for 
religion was always put first — was in part successfully accomplished. Sam- 
son Occum and other Indians were "humanized," as it was then called, or 
cultivated and improved, and became noted Indian preachers. But. pos- 
sibly, some American boys lost as much as the Indians gained, by the con- 
tagion of college fellowship. Ledyard of course got acquainted with his 
classmates. He had not been at college four months, when, doubtless upon 
Indian invitation and by permission, he visited some Indian classmates at 
their homes. He wandered to the borders of Canada, and spent some 
time among the Six Nations of New York, studying the manners and cus-

toms of the Indians, and learning their language rapidly by hearing it 
spoken and trying to speak it. He was absent from college about 3^ 
months — a long vacation ; but actively employed in the shortest method 
of learning a living language, and in that respect getting far in advance of 
what could be taught at college. He then returned and resumed his ordi- 
nary modes of study. But afterwards, although the tedium of studying 
foreign alphabets, grammar, and literature, Latin, Greek. Hebrew, or 
Indian, was permitted to be relieved by dramatic as well as field exercises 
more attractive, he grew weary, it is said, of college confinement. But he 
also found his supplies stopped. He cut or burnt out from a large tree, 
with Indian teaching and aid, an Indian canoe — doubtless for exercise on 
the river. He covered himself with a bear-skin, and descended the Con- 
necticut in h\s canoe to Hartford. He had merely some aid in dragging 
the canoe down the hill, around Bellows' Falls. He was not shot at, 
nor even capsized 3 nor would an Indian think it any great accomplish- 

At Hartford, his grandfather being dead, he found his uncle-in-law, the 
lawyer, was his guardian, and was informed that his share of property, a 
legacy, was expended and gone, or beyond his reach. He was not an heir- 
at-law. He had nothing. He claimed that unfavorable and disparaging 
letters had been sent to Dartmouth about him by his uncle, the lawyer, 
while he was met with reproachful letters also from his college President, 
and he heard his own pride and imprudence attributed as the cause of diffi- 
culties. His last letter to the President is a remarkable plea of " not 

Offended and cast off, abandoning of necessity his college and law 
office ; shaking the dust from his feet, he still thought: of studying for a 
profession. He sought Long Island, and visited his mother. He stopped 
only twenty-four hours. He had a letter, to introduce him. from her clergy- 
man. He proceeded to Last Hampton with that, and studied one month, 
on trial, with Dr. Buell. Being without supporu, he was then advised to 
seek a school, as teacher, and study, while teaching-, under the care of some 
divine. This was a common course. He travelled for this purpo>e. His 
credentials were sufficient. He was handsomely encouraged by Dr. 
Rogers, of N. Y. After earnest efforts to obtain such a position on Long 
Island and in Connecticut, he was disappointed. He had not secured, and 
on application by letter he failed to obtain — for Connecticut — a regular 
certificate of church-membership, and of dismission in good standing. He 
could have no countenance from some clergymen there, stranger? 
without it ; no employment as .eacher ; no further education. Manners' 
and habits acquired since he left home, or upon his Indian trail — rather 
than his vacant purse — may have made such a certificate appear prudent 
or necessary. Without it he was a heathen ! a barbarian ! an Indian ! He 
became nervously resentful at such superficial treatment 

He visited New London. He presently found a ship-master, a former 
friend of his father, and relying upon his favor — or as a last resource — he 
shipped as a sailor in company with the master's nephew (aftt 
a ship-master) on a voyage to the Mediterranean. He sailed first to 
Gibraltar, and thence to the coast of Barbary for a cargo of mules ; 
to the West Indies, and then back to New London. When at 
he was impressed in the British service (some say enlisted), but | 1 
released upon the demand of the shipmaster, to whom he was bound for

the round voyage. He had a hard time. He never spoke favorably of his 
treatment, but he closed his mouth and made no complaints. 

One year was consumed in this voyage. He had seen much which made 
him wish to see more. He allotted to himself a seven years' longer ram- 
ble. He had seen colonies. He now longed to visit England, the seat of 
power, and the home of his ancestors, of which he had" heard much. He 
made his way to New York, secured a passage, and sailed in a vessel 
bound to Plymouth, in England. 

Arriving in England, substantially without funds or credit, and probably 
in a plain sailors dress, he had to make his way on foot to London. This 
was hazardous. He found a pleasant Irish companion. They took turns 
in asking food and a resting place, then an ordinary thing for any strange 
traveller on, Long Island. Hospitality, even to a stranger, was deemed 

The English family of Ledyard, which he approached, did not receive 
him at once as a genuine Ledyard, nor with open arms or doors. He 
thought their civilized selfishness not only dishonored him, but was inhos- 
pitable, and he renounced them. After many journeys he wrote " all un- 
civilized men are hospitable." 

He got an introduction to Captain Cook, about to sail on his third voy- 
age, and enlisted in the marine service for that voyage. The captain could 
see he was no common sailor, took him into favor, and made him Corporal 
of Marines. He found another adventurous American on board, John 
Gore, lieutenant. With Captain Cook and Lieutenant Gore he sailed, in 
June, 1776, for the Cape of Good Hope ; thence to New Holland and 
New Zealand ; to the Friendly Isles, the Society Islands, the Sandwich 
Islands, to Cook's Inlet, and to Behring's Straits. He was present at the 
death of Captain Cook, in February, 1779, and sailing by way of China, 
after another visit to Behring's Straits, returned to England and described 
the events in writing, and many occurrences of the voyage. But the Eng- 
lish Admiralty seized and kept his journal. 

For two years afterwards he continued in the British navy, but not in 
service against his countrymen. The Revolutionary war had occurred 
during his absence. In December, 17S2, he arrived in this region, after 
the fighting was at an end, on board a ship which entered Long Island 
Sound, and was off Huntington, L. L, when he obtained leave to land and 
visit his mother. The Island was yet in the possession of the British forces, 
but they were about retiring. His mother had lost her second husband, 
and had not been well treated by the foreign soldiers. Augustus Gritting, 
the schoolmaster, merchant, and antiquarian, who preserved, in journal 
form, historical notes of events, describes her brave but courteous conduct 
in checking a reckless officer who threatened to burn her dwelling. When 
visited by her son, as a stranger, so much was he changed in appearance. 
she did not recognize him. He made trial of her hospitality. He be^ r e^i 
leave to stay, and presently brought to her notice something that deprived 
him of his incognito. The scene is yet described in the neighborhood as 
an affecting one. Mr. G rifting used often to tell the story with full partic- 
ulars, but has not inserted it in his printed journal. Ledyard then left the 
British service forever. No doubt his term of service had expired. If 
he left without regular discharge — which does not appear — then he left 
without pay. Room was wanted on board for the retreating loyali:>ts. 
He escaped from Long Island to Connecticut, and harmonized at once 

6 John Ledyard, the Traveller. [Jan., 

with either Whig or Tory, and with the sentiments of that " free and inde- 
pendent" State, no longer a colony. He silenced in his breast old resent- 
ments. He busied himself a while in writing an account of Cook's last 
voyage, for the printer. It was published at Hartford in 1783. 

He then sought employment in the fur trade, and proposed to go to the 
North-west coast of America without meeting the right person to employ 
him ; — although fairly met by Robert Morris for the government. His 
views, approved by Morris and circulated, were adopted by others and were 
successful. He next applied for an East Indian voyage ; but without suc- 
cess ; others took up that and were successful. In June, 1784, he sailed for 
Cadiz, in Spain, aided by letters from Morris. He went thence to Brest 
and to L'Orjent in France, where he wintered and studied French. He 
then engaged in a large enterprise which, encountering difficulties, had to 
be abandoned. He went to Paris, and became acquainted with Mr. Jef- 
ferson, then United States Minister there, and with Capt. Paul Jones. 
These were men who could appreciate him, and he had learned how to 
make his approaches pleasant and his society agreeable. France has 
taught these useful arts to many. He found Paul Jones at leisure, after his 
exciting adventures, and entered into extensive plans with him for visiting 
the North-west coast, which also met with delay and disappointment. He 
fell into very good society at Paris, and among others, -met those who 
could favor his passion, and by letters introduce him to friends on his 
way. He needed funds. He was popular, and Americans were popular, 
but he trespassed too far upon good feeling for funds. Many missionaries 
do so. One gentleman he commends for dealing with him handsomely, 
who said, " I am a traveller myself ; and though I have some fortune to sup- 
port my travels, yet I have been so situated as to want money ; which you 
ought not to do." Mr. Jefferson writes afterwards, "I suggested to him the 
enterprise of exploring the western part of our continent, by passing 
through St. Petersburg to Kamscatka," etc. If he did so, he was bound 
to help him raise funds. With fair recommendations and some experience 
of their value, with a small outfit and ten guineas in pocket, Ledyard pro- 
ceeded thence to London, to Hamburg, to Copenhagen, and to Stockholm. 
He went round the Gulf of Bothnia, and thence to St. Petersburg, received 
a passport and set out willingly — not like many others by compulsion — for 
Siberia; crossed the Uralian. mountains, and resided some time at Irkutsk, 
in Tartary, the capital of Eastern Siberia. It is in lat. 52.16 X. — a larger 
place now, but then had control of the principal fur trade, with 2000 log 
houses, ten churches, two battalions of soldiers, and an officer of Russia 
presiding over four provinces, whose rule extended to the Pacific. Here Led- 
yard sought and obtained much valuable information, — of course, he either 
found hospitality or cheap fare. He studied languages, customs, and trade. 
He talked with every one he could, but not offensively, about furs. He 
was particularly fond of inquiries " respecting the different races oi men. 
their origin, classification, and distinctions," and his descriptions are very 
vivid, intelligent, and accurate. Thence he journeyed northward, embark- 
ed on the crooked river Lena, and floated down it X.E. twenty-two 
days, going rapidly in all, by estimate, about 1400 miles, but by measure- 
ment 1 150 miles, from Irkutsk to Yakutsk. k - All the most costly furs are 
brought here for sale." He was within 500 miles of Okhotsk, the large bay 
which connects with the Pacific. Here he was detained and de

a Russian officer. Presently he took a sledge. He found, ; ' walking or 
private travelling more expensive than travelling post ; " an improvement 
we can estimate now near home — belonging to the desert as well as to 
the town — but scarcely expected in that wild region of snow and rein- 

He got near enough the coast to learn all the rest by" an ocean visit. He 
had great success. But suddenly he was overtaken by government orders, 
arrested, and hurried back under guard, and without any hearing, banished 
the empire. His passport was revoked. He did not stop to argue the 
point, but passed Moscow, arrived in Poland, proceeded to Konigsberg, 
and then passing through Prussia, came thence to London. In all this 
*' his scanty means were scarcely enough to keep himself from beggary." 
He offended a Russian officer by patting his dog. He was forbidden, but 
did it a second time. The Russian at once shot the favorite dog. He was 
offended ; but, according to the customs of the place, Ledyard was in the 
wrong. We may attribute to jealous fur dealers or jealous emperors, 
Russian, French, or English, the interruption of his journey and plans. 
He was discovering their secrets, and patting their dogs. They were late 
in their arrest. For he communicated quickly to intelligent friends the 
principal secrets which he discovered, but not all nor to all, and Mr. Jeffer- 
son was one to appreciate their importance. Parts had for a long 
time to be kept close ; some for political reasons, some to be used 
only by a favored few. They did not fairly belong to the public ; for 
— except by mere letters of introduction, by hospitality, and small 
contributions, — the public did not favor their acquisition nor in any 
way reward the explorer. Mr. Jefferson contributed some money ; but 
probably did not charge the amount to the government. Ledyard, 
to get home, had to draw on personal friends. Thus baffled, cramped 
and embarrassed, he, with little loss of time, being in debt, accepted 
an offer of the African Association, at London, to visit and explore the 
interior of Africa. It was part of the world he had not conquered or 
examined. There was more than this to consider — if slavery in America 
crossed his mind, as indeed it did. He had yet the taste, and had 
established in his favor the character of an explorer. He could earn 
his support and he secured an employer. He saw Mr. Jarvis, Mr. Frank- 
lin and others of New York, in London. He wrote home to his mother 
and friends. He visited Mr. Jefferson and La Fayette in Paris. He 
claimed to Mr. Jefferson that. Mr. J. injured him, by talking to his French 
and American friends in reprehension of his engaging himself to an Eng- 
lish company ; but he agreed to and did correspond with Mr. Jefferson. 
Can any one blame him for wishing some engagement that would pay his 
current expenses? It was much to his honor to be heartily tired of begging, 
and of running in debt. He again passed through France. He sailed 
from Marseilles to Alexandria in Egypt ; arrived at Cairo — then half the size 
of Paris — visited the caravans and slave markets ; spent three months in 
learning everything he could there, and learned more about the Nile than 
others ; he talked with travelling parties, who said they came from the source 
of the Nile ; but he studied principally the language, characters and mod 
and he was well satisfied with his progress in learning. He then joined 
a caravan ; but was taken ill of a bilious attack. He probably was not 
well attended, nor well conditioned to bear such sudden changes of climate, 
food or medicine. He died at Cairo in November, 17S8, in the 58th war

of his age. His travels were ended, and many, but not all. of their discov- 
eries lost. His letters were mostly preserved, but not all published, nor 
perhaps the most important. He kept a journal for the African Com- 
pany, which was saved, and he wrote some letters to it. His personal 
description is given by a competent writer : "He was a close and in- 
quisitive observer of everything which came* within his reach. Ardent 
in his wishes, but calm in his deliberations ; daring in his purposes, 
but guarded in his measures; impatient of control, vet capable of 
strong endurance ; adventurous beyond the conception of ordinary men, 
yet wary and attentive to precautions ; he appeared formed by nature 
for achievements of hardihood and peril." Nearly all of this, perhaps, might 
be said of some Indian brave ; but there was more. He was a great lin- 
guist, a good writer, and a deep thinker. He had decided defects, but at 
the bottom, as ruling and guiding things, an early religion, and an early 
education, the best a good mother could give him, seeking general improve- 
ment and the benefit of all, first by learning, and then by teaching, which 
enabled him to record, and mark, and teach to us all most important ad- 
vances in science and humanity, in which he has no Indian competitor, 
nor scarcely a white one. His life seems diverted and governed by shows 
and the mere accidents of chance. But thus guided in principles it exhib- 
ited a passion to learn, and a practised skill in a particular direction, that 
of learning living languages and using them to converse with strangers, such 
as makes the skilful player, even in a game of chance, almost sure to win ; 
and he won. He acquired for the benefit of mankind, such as could not 
travel, as much solid information as any other hero of his order. From 
him Mr. Jefferson learned the situation of the ground, and the methods of 
fur-dealing and governing, and when in power started Lewis and Clarke 
across this continent, opened the interior route, and connected it with the 
fur trade, by the ocean, and laid the foundations for the Louisiana pur- 
chase, the development of the Columbia River, and of Oregon, and, in 
brief, the extension of our country to the Pacific. 

From him we can all learn much about people and races c( men, how 
they are changed by habits, and how they can be improved, and whether 
they should be excluded as unfit to live with us, or held in subjection or in 
slavery as beneath us. His abhorrence of vice is very marked, and his 
portrayal of its debasing consequences hardly equalled ; nor less, the dangers 
of despotism and superstitious tyranny. 

His superior knowledge on many topics has been, of course, roughly 
criticised, almost mocked by the class who, upon those topics, scarcely 
knew anything. But he has been found right, and they, the erroneous. 
His missionary spirit, his trampling under foot all the attractions and vil- 
lanies of greed, are not approved by the large class who disbelieve that part 
of the Bible which says " the love of money is the root of all evil." He 
wrote : "You will please to accept these two observations as the result of 
assiduous and extensive inquiry. They are with me well ascertained tacts. 
The first is, that the difference of color in the human species (all but 
negroes, whom I have not visited) originates from natural causes. The 
second is, that all the Asiatic Indians, etc., etc., are the same people The 
American Tartar is also of the same family, the most ancient and numer 
people on earth, and the most uniformly alike. The great genera! 
in the customs of men can only be accounted for by supposing them all to 
compose one family." 

1876.] A Bio graph ical Sketch . o 

To his mother, before going to Africa, he wrote : " I have trampled the 
world under my feet, laughed at fear, and derided danger. Through mil- 
lions of tierce savages, over parching deserts, the freezing North, the ever- 
lasting ice and stormy seas have I passed without harm. How good is mv 
God !" To another : "My distresses have been greater than I have ever 
owned, or ever will own to any man." 

From Mr. Sparks there may be a safe dissent on pointsof which he knew 
little, or could learn little. It was his misfortune that he saw not the 
friends or assistants of Ledyard, so much as those who made excuses for 
not assisting ; and even his general conclusion may be doubted. Of Led- 
yard, " the acts of his life demand notice," more "on account of their re- 
sults," than for anything else, and his language, such as his " Eulogy of 
Woman," seems superior to that of many of his critics. Southey, as re- 
ported, was anonymously one of the critics, but in the interest of another 
explorer and author or publisher, and in praise of Englishmen. 

On some points the writer of the article described Ledyard as the mous- 
ing owl of closeted twilight, would describe the flight at mid-day of the wild 
goose, or the eagle, he could not tell which, but supposed it a mosquito 
hawk, or (in his own words) " a sort of wandering vagabond, without em- 
ployment, motive, or means of support." It is strange that two such writers 
should take such pains to spread out everything that seemed discreditable, 
one rinding no results and the other no motive for such unusual travel, such 
energy, such suffering. From both of these hasty decisions an appeal is 
made to all travellers. 

They best can appreciate results. The missionary class, on a thousand 
fields, have tested the advantages of studying and using native languages. 
Even China has yielded to their efforts. The plan, all over the world, 
had been to put forward the missionary to learn and teach the foreign 
languages. At length, merchants, travellers, and even statesmen who act 
as ambassadors, perceive that much maybe gained by knowing, themselves, 
the language of the people with whom they deal. The extent and rapidity 
of travel, such as Ledyard' s, becomes of more and more importance as a 
study. It is bringing the remote parts of the world near together. E \ 
land was as distant apparently to the Romans, and Ireland to the Norman 
adventurers, as America was to the early settlers of New England, whose 
passages by the southern route across the Atlantic seldom took less than 
three months, and often five or six, and whose instructions were, "You 
will not be unmindful of the main end of our plantation, by endeavoring to 
bring the Indians to the knowledge of the Gospel," etc. etc. Less than 
ninety years ago, some pioneers going west from Groton, Conn., to Au- 
burn, in this State, where Indians then lived, travelling as fast as they could, 
laboriously accomplished that distance in forty days. 

Now, distance is so diminished by rapidity that miles are forgotten, and 
only minutes or hours become the measure ; or if the distance be so great 
that days are used, we go to London or Paris in ten days, or to San Fran- 
cisco in seven, and so around. And, what is equally striking and more com- 
mon, we can converse with those who daily arrive from these distant places, 
or hear from the residents instantly. The march is still west. 

Communication by language being important and useful, has not Led- 
yard taught us that the art or skill of acquiring strange languages rapi j 
may also be attained ? And easier, or quicker, by converse, than at college ? 
It is an art worth teaching, and other results may follow.

Motto. — Per crucem ad Stellas. 

The above arms are from a seal cut for Mr. Henry Ledyard, of New 
York, from a small achievement in colour belonging to Mrs. Stevens, who 
lived at Hartford, Ct., with her father, the son of John Ledyard the original 
settler. The name of Ledyard is probably of Welsh origin. The arms 
are the same as those of Liddiard of Wiltshire, except that the latter bear 
three mullets only on the chevron. 

JOHN LEDYARD, first of the name in America and ancestor of a long 
line of descendants both in the male and female line, was born in England 
in the year 1700. The family was from Bristol, and tradition connects it 
with that of Lediard-Tregoze [the name of a seat in Wiltshire], from which 
sprung the Lords of St. John, Earls of Bolingbroke, an extinct title. His 
mother was a Yarborough. He came to America at an early age. and first 
appears as teaching a Latin School at Southold, Long Island. iie:i:ere 
married his first wife Deborah, daugnter of Benjamin Youngs of that place. 
From Southold he crossed to Groton, Conn., where he long resided ; and 
this town is the principal birth-place of the American family of Ledyard. 
Later he moved to Hartford, Conn., where he married his second wife 
Mary, the widow of John Ellery, of Hartford, and daughter of John Aus- 
tin and Mary Stanley his wife [widow of Nathaniel Hooker]. \o\\\\ Austin 
was also an emigrant, a midshipman in the reign of Queen Anne, who. at- 
tracted by the progress of the religious colony, left the service, and turning 
his fortune into goods, settled in Hartford, where he became a merchant of 
note. John Ledyard was a citizen of great distinction and influence and 
of literary culture. He died at Hartford on the 3d September, 1 7 7 1 . 
lies buried in the Old Centre Burying Ground, where a large free stone 
tomb and slab cover his remains.

Monthly Meeting, N. J., to Kenhett Monthly Meeting. Pa., in 1732, and was married 
the same year at Kennett Meeting, to Elizabeth Miller. They settled in Lancaster 
county, and have numerous descendants, among whom is Miss Anna Dickinson. His 
certificate from Haddonfield does not show that he had been a member there very long. 
^Information is wanted as to his ancestry.

Henry and perhaps others, of whom Henry removed to Berks county. Pa., about 1742. 
Deborah married Samuel Wilson in 1732, and they also removed to Berks county. Can 
this Joseph be identified with the one who married Deborah Simmons in 1702 ? (See

Elizabeth Rowland, was b. at Milford about 164S, and d. at N. E. , 17 Oct., 1721. He

Nov., 1671, m. 16S9-90, Stephen Prentiss) and John (b. 20 Mar., 1674, m. 2 Jan.. 17.-0. 
his cousin Bathsheba Smith, and had by her and a second wife 20 children) ; but on ac- 
count of his heterodoxy his wife, after 18 months' effort, secured a divorce from him in 
1676, and m. 5 Aug., 1679, Peter Pratt (d. 24 Mar. 16SS), and in 1601 Matthew Beck- 
with, by whom she had a dau. Griswold, who became the wife of Eliakim Cooley o'" 
Springfield. In 1700, the divorced husband, John Refers, having lived single for a 
quarter of a century, married himself to Mary Ransford, who was separated from him by 
decree of the court in 1703, and who then fled to Block Island, where, in 17 10, she m. 
Robert Jones. The two children whom she had borne to John Rogers she left i 5 

charge. In 1 7 1 4, he took for a third wife the Widow Sarah Coles of Oyster Bay, L. I., 
the marriage ceremony being performed within the jurisdiction of Rhode Eland I 
trate of that colony. 

I am very desirous of knowing the names, birthdays and fates of the>e two children of 
John Rogers and Mary Ransford, for I assume that one of them became the father of 
Ransford Rogers, who m. for his second wife Belinda Flower (b. 9 May, 1761, d. 1 June,

1^44), by whom he had three daughters (Jan., i789.-Oct., 1791), and d. in Agawam 
about 18 10, aged about 70. He served in the war of Independence (probably in a Con- 
necticut regiment, as his name is said to be on some muster roll at Hartford, and there is a 
tradition that he m.his first wife at Lyme), was a schoolmaster, " botanic physician," and 
general soldier of fortune. I wish to know the time and place of his birth and of his 
two marriage-, the name of his parents, of his fifst wife (by whom he had three children) 
and of her parents, and in general any facts concerning him that are not here indicated. 

As to Mary Ransford, though she is said to have been a maid-servant whom he [J. R.J 
had bought, being probably one of that class of persons called Redemptioners, (Caul- 
kins' s Hist. N. L. y p. 216), I think she may possibly have been identical with the Mary 
Ransford b. 2 July, 1659, who was dau. of Jonathan Ransford and Mary Sunderland, as 
noted by Savage in his Dictionary. I shall be glad to learn anything as to the fates of 
either of them, and of Robert Jones of Block Island, and the Widow Sarah Coles of 
Oyster Bay. L. h. b.

. Van Rensselaer. — Mrs. Harriet Bayard van Rensselaer (Harriet E. Bayar: . 
Mrs. Harriet E. Bayard van Rensselaer, widow of Gen. Stephen van Rensselaer, the last 
of the Patroons of Rensselaerwyck, died at the Manor House, in the s 
on the 19th of July, 1875, in the 77th year of her age, and was buried on the 21 -t, in the 
family burial-place in the Albany Cemetery. She was the younger daughter of Mr. '.. 
of New York, and when she married the " Young Patroon " was one of the most 
women in America. As lovely in character as in person, she won the hearts of all, the hum- 
blest as well as the highest, and presided at the Manor House with such gTace and sim:_ .e 
dignity as to add an indescribable charm to the warm hospitality lor which that old a. 
home was always famed, and which none who knew it will ever see surpa-?cJ. A marked. 
incident of her funeral was the actual bearing of her remains from the great hall of the 
Manor House to the hearse, and from the hearse to the grave, by eight oi her y 
grandsons. And there was present, too, her only surviving sister, Mrs. Maria Baya - : 
Campbell, of New York, the widow of Duncan P. Campbell, of New York, although 
nearly ten years her senior. This last venerable lady only survived Mrs. van Rensse':.rr 
about three months, having passed from earth, loved, esteemed, and honored, on the 25th 
of October, 1875. at lne a & e ot ~ 86 years. Mr. William Bayard, the elder brother of 
ladies, died in this city on the 9th of March, 1S75. Strange that three members of this 
old New York family should be called from earth within about six months of the same 
year, and at the great ages of S7, 86, and 77. Another brother, the venera'./ : Mr. 
Robert Bayard, still survives in good health. 

Mrs. van Rensselaer left the following children (two sons, Stephen and Bayard, havir.g 
died before her).

By Edwin R. Purple. 

(first four generations.) 

Cornells Jacobsen, alias Cornelis Jacobsen .Van Vreelandt, alias 
Cornelis Jacobsen Stille, the ancestor of tlie Somerendyck and Woerteu- 
dyk families, was in New Amsterdam as early as May, 1659, an< ^ mav haw- 
been the junior Cornelis Jacobsen, who, with Cornelis Jacobsen, Senioi . 
of Mertensdyk, leased, on the 14th of May, 163S. from Barent Dircksen. 
baker, the bouwery or farm called Walenstyne. He and Jan Jacobsc i 
Stille, probably his brother, were farmers and leased together 15th Aug::--. 
1639, from Jonas Bronck, a lot of land with dwelling-house and stock. 
His brother was probably the Jan Jacobsen of Vrelant. who made a mar- 
riage contract. August 15, 1639, with Maritje Pieters, of Copenhagen, and 
who conveyed, July 29, 1644, to Lambert Valckenburgh, a house on tlie 
island of Manhatten with 25 morgens of land adjoining. He probably left 
the country soon after or died without issue. 

On the 29th July, 1641, Cornelis Jacobsen Stille deeded to Lambert 
Huybertsen Mol a house and plantation next to Hans Hansen [Bergen] 
on Long Island, and May 13th, 1643, leased of Cornelis Van Tienhoven 
his bouwery in the Smiths Valley. On the iSth March, 1647, he obtained 
from Gov. Rieft a patent for bouwery No. 6, previously occupied by Wolf- 
ert Gerritsen [Van CouwenhovenJ, containing 2S.V morgens of land/ 
estate, says Mr. Valentine,- lay between Division Street and the East River, 
extending eastward nearly to Corlear's Hook, and on the south-west in- 
cluded Wolfert's Meadows, through which ran the stream which carried 
the waters of the Kalkhook, or Fresh Water pond, to the East River. The 
original Stille farm house was situated at the head of Chatham Square, on

the north-west corner of the present Fast Broadway ; the kitchen stood on 
the opposite side of East Broadway. Before 1668 Stille conveyed one- 
half of this farm to Augustine Hermans, winch portion was again conveyed, 
January 10th, 1685, to Wolfert Webbers and Hendrick Cornelisen [Van 
Schaick] by Francisca Hermans, as attorney for her father. 1 The premi- 
ses were later known as the Rutgers farm, but have* for many years com- 
prised one of the most densely populated portions of the city.

early settlers of New Netherland, to add to the name given to a male at 
his birth or baptism, that of his father's first name with the addition diereto 
of zen, zoon, se, or sen, meaning son. To the female's name was added 
her father's Christian name, with the addition usually of s, and sometimes 
(though paradoxical) zen or se. His name appears more frequently in the 
records as Jacob Corneliszen, /. e., Jacob son of Cornelis, than as Ja 
Corneliszen Stille or Jacob Stille. His sisters Neeltje and Janneken are 
called Neeltje Cornelis, Jannetie Cornelis, and rarely Neeltje an I Jannetie 
Stille. His sons took the surnames of Somerendyk and YV< lrtenpyk, 
finally retaining the latter as their family name. He m. 1 : , March 5,

(First Four Generations.) 

Besides the two families of Goosen Gerritse and Claas Van Schaick, who 
early settled on the upper Hudson, and are referred to by Prof. Pearson, in 
the Record, vol. 2, p. 191, there was another of the same name, of which 
Cornells Aertszen who settled in New Amsterdam prior to 1641, was the 
head. In January 1660-70. Ariaen Cornelissen, Hendrick Cornelissen, and 
Lysbeth Cornelissen, described as the lawful heirs of Cornells Aertsen. con- 
veyed to Capt. John Berry, of Bergen, in New Jersey, two parcels oi land 
on the Island of Manhattan ; " the first, lying and being on east end of Cor- 
nells Jacobsen (Stille), and on the west end of Coriears plantation, &c ; " 
the second, "lying against land formerly belonging to Hans Kierstede. 'he- 
ginning from the first marsh, over against Augustine Hermans' land, from 
thence to the fence of Bastiaen, the negroes land, and so to the fence of 
Thomas Hail's land ; which said two parcels of land were confirmed u ! 
the said heirs of Cornells Aertsen, by a patent from Rt. Hon. Gov. Francois 
Lovelace, bearing date, 16th Sept., 1669. &C." 1 Of his personal history but 
little is known ; Mr. Valentine in his History of the City of New York, says 
lie was at one time the tenant of Gov. Stuyvesant's farm, 0:1 the Bowery, 
and long supplied the families of the city with country produce ; he was 
afterwards a tenant on the old Damen farm, east from Broadway, a si 
distance above the city gate. He probably came to New Amsterdam with 
his wife Belitje Hendricks, there being no record of their marriage here. 
He was sponsor at the baptism of his gr-dau. Belitje. Oct. 1, 1663, an 
1665 ,,vas living without the land gate ; he died between the year 1065. 
Sept. 1669. About the year 16S0. his sons began to use the surname of 
Vav Schaick. At his 2d marriage, July 10, 1662, to Weyntie Ell 
widow of Aert Willemszen, he is called the widower of Belitje Hendricks. 
By his 2d wife had no issue.

Astor. — The newspaper "Lives" and Obituary notices of the late William B. 
Astor, so far as they have fallen under the observation of the writer, are singularly at 
fault in regard to his early education, including even those sketches which are said to 
have been authorized by his family. 

No one better appreciated the advantages, not only of a thorough, but of a liberal 
education than John Jacob Astor, and it might well be imagined, that such a man — 
conscious of his own deficiencies, and with the expressed certainty that his son would be 
one of the richest men in America — would take good care that his chief heir should lack 
no advantage. The printed accounts state that William B. Astor, until sent to Heidel- 
berg, at the age of sixteen, had received but a limited instruction in the public schools, 
and in vacation, sorted furs. The statement is equally unjust to the father and the son; 
in fact, from his earliest youth Mr. Astor attended the best schools of New York, and 
its neighborhood. As early as 1 800-1 he was sent to the private boarding school of the 
Rev. Mr. Smith, at Stamford, Conn., one of the most expensive and exclusive schools 
in the country ; limited to eight or ten, boys, generally from New York, Boston, and 
South Carolina. Astor's fellow-students, besides others who remained for a short time 
only, were, Herman Lc Roy, Joseph Delafiekl, N. and J. Gouverneur, William Wilkes, 
Harry Monigauit, of S. C, and J. Roosevelt.* The course of study and the discipline 
were severe, but those who passed through the regular course never forgot their Latin 
and Greek ; indeed, the colleges complained that the boys who came up from Dr. 
Smith's were too well read in the classics. From this preceptor, perhaps, quite as much 
as the more famous Bunsen, did Mr. Astor acquire his early knowledge and taste as a 

All his life Mr. Astor remembered his school-boy days with pleasure ; meeting any 
of his old companions, he delighted to recall the pranks that were played, and the 
annoyances that he was then subjected to by his fellow-students, with retentive memory 
recalling even the details of boyhood's joys and sorrows. M. L. D. 

The Holland Church of New York. — We take pleasure in calling the attention 
of our readers and the public to the fact, presumably not generally known, that religious 
sen-ices and worship still continue to be held in the original Dutch (Holland) language 
in this city and vicinity, as the following interesting information, communicated by the 
Rev. A. H. Bechthold", will show. 

From the time this colony ultimately came 'o the possession of the English, immi- 
gration from Holland ceased almost entirely. S s as went from the mother country, 
removed mostly to the Holland possessions, at the Cape of Good Hope, in South Africa, 
to Surinam, Essequibo, St. Eustasia, Curacoa, St. Martens, &c. But intolerance and 
religious persecutions in Holland from 1830 to 1840 aroused a renewed spirit of emigra- 
tion to this country. Although chiefly seeking homes in the Western States, many 
have remained in and near this city, For several years, Ending here no church where 
they could worship in their mother tongue, services were held in private houses. In the 
early part of the year 1S66, the propriety and necessity of their organization iuto a 
church was brought to the attention of the Reformed Church in this city, when, the 
classes beirg called together for that purpose, on the 26th of February, in that year. 
appointed a committee, consisting of the late venerable father, Dr. De Witt , and Dr. 
Duryea, both at that time ministers of the Collegiate Dutch Church, to organize the 
"Holland Church," which they did, by solemn and impressive ceremonies, on the 7th 
of March, 1866, with thirty-five members; eighteen by profession, and seventeen by

accepted a call from one of the Holland churches in Michigan. The present pastor, 
Rev. A. H. Bechthold, was called in 1S70 from the Holland Congregation Church, in 

The field of the Holland Church is very extensive, as it includes the whole city of New 
York, and its immediate surroundings. Its special mission is to preach the Gospel in the 
old mother tongue for those who cannot understand English, especially for the aged. For 
the younger ones this may be considered a kind of half-way house, where they remain 
until they understand enough of English to join the American Church ; thus, in some 
respects, is this church a ''John the Baptist " to bridge over a chasm from one order of 
things to another. It does not intend to perpetuate the Dutch language, for isolation by- 
language is highly undesireable on the part of any class or portion of the community. One 
other object of its calling is to look after the interests of the poorer class of immigrants 
and relieve their immediate necessities. It now numbers ninety-five members, but has 
under its care about one hundred families in different sections of the city, and in Brooklyn, 
Hoboken and Jersey City. Public worship is held on Sabbath mornings at No. 279 
West Eleventh street, between Bleecker and Fourth streets , also in the evening of every 
second Thursday in the month, at the Rev. H. Ward Beecher's Bethel, No. 15 Hicks 
street, Brooklyn. At either place, every admirer of the genuine Dutch can join in the 
hymns and praises, and listen to the truths of the gospel proclaimed in the identical ver- 
nacular of our worthy Dutch ancestors.

Publication Committee of Recoi'd: 

Sirs :— Would you be kind enough to insert the following query? Abraham Brincker- 
hoff, (son of Derick Brinckerhoff, of Newtown, L. I., and Altie Conwenhoven), born 
about 1700, married Femetje Remsen Vanderbeek, and settled at Fishkiil, Dutchess county, 
where he had a daughter Gerradyna (or Diana), baptized in the Reformed church in 1732. 
As Vanderbeek was the original name of the Remsen family, was Femetje a daughter of 
Rem Remsen, of Kings county, L. I., (son of Ioris Remsen, who married Femetje Wort- 
man in 16S4) who died about 1724, having married Altie Bergen in 1707? His will, 
proved June 7th, 1724, in Surrogate's office, N. V. city, mentions wife Altie; mother 
Femetje; children Joris, Jan, Femetje, Sarah and An tie ; brothers-in-law. Joost Debevoise 
and Johannes Bergen. 

Would you be kind enough also, to insert the following query concerning Benjamin 
Hasbrouck (or Hasbrook) ? Benjamine Flasbrook, young man, from Ulster county, 
married at Fishkiil, N. Y., Feb. 1737, Jannetje Delange, young woman, born in Dutchess 
county, they had the following children baptized at Fishkiil : Marytjen, bap. May j 
1739, sponsors F'rans de Lange and Marytjen van Schaick ; Daniel, bap. 1740: Heyltje, 
bap. 1743, and Frans bap. May nth, 1746, whose sponsors were Frans de Lange and 
Marytjen Van Schaick. Benjamin Hasbrook was bom in 1709, and is believe 1 to be 
identical with Benjamin, youngest son of Abraham Hasbrouck, one of the Huguenot 
Patentees of New Paltz, in Ulster county, in 1677, who married Marie Leys. Abraham 
Hasbrouck had a younger brother Jean, also a Patentee hi 1677, who I >n Benjamin 

who might also have been the settler at Fishkiil. Was Jannetje, wife of Benjamin Has- 
brook, identical with Jannetje, dau of Frans de Lange and Marytje Van Schaick, bap. 
at Kingston, N. Y., in 1715? Frans de Lange was a native of Ulster county. N. V., 
and had children baptized at Kingston as early as 171 1, he was living in Dutchess c unty, 
N. Y., in 1714. Jannetje Hasbrook was born in 1712, and may have been taken to Kings- 
ton for baptism, as the earliest church in Dutchess comity was not organized until 17 16. 
Who were the parents of Marytjen Van Schaick ? The Van Schaicks were early set 
on the upper Hudson. 

I remain yours, very respectfully, 

Oswald II alp am-:. 

P. S. I omitted to mention, that Benjamin Hasbrook was one of the executors of the 
will of Frans de Lange in 1755.

NUYSE and other Long Eland families, by TEUNIS G. Bergen. Albany N. V. : 
J GEL Munsell, 1S76. Svo. 65S pages. 

For the past twelve years we have been in the habit of referring everyone who came to 
us (as many do) for information concerning Long Eland Dutch families, to the author of 
the work whose title we have here quoted. Thoroughly imbued with a love of his Dutch 
ancestry, and versed in their language, connected by blood with nearly every prominent 
Dutch family in Kings County, Staten Eland and New Jersey; having spent his life in 
surveying the estates of that county, and always prominent in its politics, he seems, from 
birth, to have been the " born historian " of the west end of Long Island, — especially in 
the genealogical line. No genealogist except Riker (in his Newtown Genealogies) has 
ever so thoroughly attempted, or so well succeeded in threading the intricacies peculiar to 
the old Holland family histories. This Bergen genealogy, and the History of New Utrecht 
(now in MSS. ready for the printer) form but a very small proportion of the immense 
amount of valuable genealogical material already in a considerable degree of complete- 
ness, and which our own eyes have seen. 

Mr. Bergen's work is really an enlargement of the Family History which he published 
in 1S66, and in this ten years' interval has grown from 302 to 65 S pages. There is a re- 
markable absence of " self-humbuggery " in the work: the author disclaims any titled 
connections abroad; and is simply content to present a faithful record of honest ancestry 
of humble origin and growth. He presents four pages of interesting "'arms of Duich 
families," but fully expresses whatever doubts he has concerning their authenticity or their 
belonging to the American branches ; while he modestly says : " if a copy of the arms of 
the Holland Bergens had been found, it would also have been given as a curiosity. An im- 
aginary and proper coat of arms for Hans Hansen, from Bergen, in Norway, would be a 
shield charged with a ship-wright working on a vessel on the stocks, with a view of a dis- 
tant hill, or mountain." 

The Bergen family are so intimately connected with the history of the present city of 
Brooklyn, that portions of this work almost seem to be local history, rather than a mere 
family history ; the effec. being greatly increased by the many copies of map.-,, and sections 
of estate maps and of Bergen homesteads; and quantities of fate simile autographs and 
several views of localities within the city's bounds. There are no less than seven of these 
maps; twelve Bergen homestead views, and fourteen Bergen portraits; most of which, 
to our personal knowledge, are' excellent likenesses — together with several other general 
Brooklyn views. 

The arrangement of the genealogy is simple and references can be conveniently made ; 
although there is no attempt at any of the more scientific and elaborate arrangements so 
commonly found in late works of this class. It is a book which, from tide to colophon, 
reflects the character and genius of its author— old-fashioned, practical, Loving and truth- 
ful ; and will prove a mine of information and pleasure to many a diligent delvcr in genea- 
logical lore. 

Accustomed as we have been to labor in Brooklyn fields of genealogy and hiscory, these 
pages have brought back to our mental view our old companions and studies with delight- 
ful freshness ; and we know that there are others besides ourselves who will find the same 
pleasure in their perusal. H. R. S.

The publication of this work in numbers, commenced in 1S70, has been completed with 
great pains and labor. It is a very curious collection of historical matter, relating to the 
nation, the borough, and the principal families and men who have resided or acted their 
parts at Great Yarmouth. It has an ''Index Rerum " and an "Index Nominum.'' The 
Wit is a convenient guide to the principal topics of interest, and the other contains a large

list of names, which will be found convenient for tracing families ; including the connections 
of such as came to this country. The antiquarian will prize the book. It is full of the 
quaint and curious old descriptions which charm him. There are many libraries in this 
country which ought to be enriched by these volumes. It would give us pleasure to aid 
in effecting this. C. Ii. M.

Charles Sotheran, Esq., the author of this book, (now a resident of our city) is a de- 
scendant of the Sotherans of Ampleforth in the County of York, England, wh^e genealogy 
is given in its pages. He married in 1S69, the daughter of John MacManus of Drum- 
broughas, County Fermanagh, Ireland, the descendant of a long line of Irish kings. Mr. 
Sotheran has been indefatigable in his efforts to obtain information relative to the his 
of the various branches cf his family, and has met with the success he deserved, The 
main portion of this work is reprinted from " Miscellanea Genealogica et Heraldica," but 
the additional material is important and abundant. 

The present volume will be a necessity to all who were interested in the work as origin- 
ally published, and it is a valuable addition to the stock of English genealogies. We here 
find information relative to the families of Barker, Calverly, Easterly, Estcourt, Forster, 
Gale, Gascoigne, Grey, Hanson, Hirst, Hodgson, Irvine, Leigh, Newsomc, Oliver. 
Proctor, Ridel, Saville and many others. Very full pedigrees are given exemplifying the 
descent of the Sept MacManus from the ancient Kings of Connaught. These pedigrees 
were extracted by Sir John Bernard Burke, Ulster King of Arms, from the records pre- 
served in Ulster's office, Dublin Castle. 

The name of Sotheron or Sotheran dates back in the County of York to the time of 
Henry III., and in the year 1316, " Thomas Sotheran velle Southern " was found Lord of 
Mitton, County York, conjointly with the heirs of Sir Henry de Percy. This Thomas 
was the ancestor of all, or nearly all. the Sotherons whose pedigrees are here given. The 
book is handsomely printed and contains over fifty well executed engravings of Coats of 
Arms and ancient seals. J. O. B. 

American Biographical Notes, being short notices of deceased persons, chiefly those 
not included in Allen's or in Drake's Biographical Dictionaries, gathered from many 
sources, and arranged by Franklin B. Hough. Svo. pp 442. Albany: Joel

If this contribution to knowledge by the historian of the X. W. quarter of our State, 
be imitated by others in different directions, we may presently gather some idea of the 
rich history of persons and things which belongs particularly to our territory. He shows 
in his preface how he was compelled to make such a gathering. But future students 
ought not to be under such compulsion. The book should be purchased as a supplement 
to Drake's Biographical Dictionary and to the local histories separately published by Dr. 
Hough. C. B. M. 

Correction.— In the January Number of the Record, page 44, in the Query regard- 
ing " Willits," the name of Willits' daughter, is erroneously printed Anna. It should 
be Amy.

Vol. VII. NEW YORK, JULY, 1876. No. 


By Charles B. Moore. 

r BRYAN NEWTON, by report b. in England ; mar. Alice or Elsie . 

We have very brief notices of his prominent action under Governor 
Stuyvesant, in the early history of New York. 

^l selection and arrangement of items, showing his friends and associates, 
may lighten up the dim history, and encourage us to pursue the like with 
others. It shows the permanent value of publications in our Record, 
which may otherwise appear dull and unprofitable. The curious varieties 
of spelling warn us as to others. 

He bore an old English name. A predecessor of the same Christian 
and family name appeared in the reign of K. Edward VI. (1547-53) at 
Whytyngdon, in Lancashire. Near twenty years afterwards, in 9th Eliz. 
(1567) he, or another of a similar name, was sued for some title deeds of 
land, calred Blacke's Garthe, in the town of Lancaster, and of the manor 
of Claughton. Three years later, in 12th Eliz. (1570), probably the same 
man was Mayor of Lancaster. And twenty-four years afterwards, in 36th 
Eliz. (1594) one of his name was sued, with others, by Bryan Jackson. 
W r e are left to infer whether all these entries related to one active man, or 
to several in succession. 

One, twenty-four years later, we may suppose a descendant of the first 
one, or of the same stock. He was called Brianus Newton "generosus 
of Hereford," and d. about 161S, in 15th James L, having property of which 
a formal inquisition was taken, or, in modern phrase, an inventory, [v. G. 
& B. Rec, vol. 4, p. 46.] He may have been the father or uncle of our 
Bryan. The corresponding name, so unusual, may be sufficient to indicate 
him a relative, in the absence of other information. We may imagine the 
land all gone, and disappointment left; and may remember the conniv- 
ances used in England for securing soldiers, in the interest of England, to 
serve abroad, in the Netherlands or elsewhere. 

We must estimate the date of his birth about 1600 or 1606. At some 
date, not precisely certain, he became a soldier or officer — probably at 
first with the English, and next under the States of Holland, when allies of 
England. Estimating the date from all the data we have, he commenced 
service as an English soldier about 1626, in the fust or second year of K. 
Charles I. 

In October of that year, 1626, a fleet of eighty vessels, carrying a force 

o8 Biographical Sketch of Capt. Bryan Newton, [J n b'> 

of ten thousand men, sailed from England for Cadiz. The force was landed 
and a fort taken, various excesses committed, and then the warriors 
re-embarked and returned. Capt. John Underhill was in that expedition, 
who about four years later came to this country, and it is quite probable 
that Bryan Newton left England on that occasion. 

The next year, 1627, was noted for the English expedition, professed to 
be in relief of the Huguenots of Rochelle, in which John YYinthrop, Jr., 
afterwards Governor of Connecticut, participated. And in that year John 
Underhill, Lyon Gardiner, and others were in the Netherlands. About that 
period Bryan Newton must have been in the Dutch service, and, as was not 
unusual, took a wife ; but we have no exact trace of him. He evi- 
dently became valuable as an officer to drill and discipline soldiers. The 
next distinct report is that when Peter Stuyvesant was Governor of Curacoa, 
or in command there, Bryan Newton was in office, civil and military. under 

When was- this? The islands, including Curacoa, were captured from 
the Spanish or Portuguese, by the Dutch, in 1634, probably by a naval 
force, to secure a good harbor ; and Stuyvesant was sent there, it is 
believed, after the islands were first seized. A fort was garrisoned, and the 
proposed town on the island of Curacoa was called at first New Amsterdam, 
when few Europeans were there. It is now " Willemstad," "one of the 
handsomest towns in the West Indies," with about eight thousand inhabitants. 

Early in 1644, Stuyvesant, as commanding officer at Curacoa, made an 
attack on the Island of St. Martin, in possession of the Portuguese. He 
invested the capital, and laid siege to it about a month. Succor was then 
thrown into the town, and he abandoned it. He was wounded in one knee. 
The hot cjimate was unfavorable for his wound. In the autumn he returned 
to Holland for surgical aid. A storm drove him into the English Channel. 
He landed in Ireland, and thence passed to Holland. At that time the 
English Government was greatly disordered, and practically overthrown by 
the civil war. It is probable he became impressed with the idea that its 
cohesion was gone, and would not be restored. He had the example of 
the Netherlands before him. Arrangements were soon made for sending 
him to this region. 

The plan of government contrived in Holland by the Dutch West India 
Company, to be exercised here, was by a supreme council consisting of a 
Director, Vice-Director, and Eiscal. The Vice-Director, Van Dinklage, 
was appointed 5th May, 1645, and the Eiscal, Van Dyck, on 28th June, 
1645. The instructions were dated Amsterdam, 7th July, 1645, arK i fully 
define the plan : but action was delayed, perhaps by Stuyvesant' s wound. 
William Kieft was in office here. He had invited Englishmen, and used 
them under Capt. Underhill to subdue the Indians. The formal commission 
to Petrus Stuyvesant to be Director "in the countries and places of X::j 
Netherland and the islands of Curacoa, Buenaire, Aruba and their depen- 
dences," to exercise with his council great power over all, was issued at the 
Hague, on 18th July, 1646. The new Director and the Vice-Director 
were both sworn on that day. "The other officers, who were to proceed 
to New Netherland, were Hendrick Van Dyck, Schout-nscal ; Capt. Br} 
Neivton, an Englishman , who had already served the Company son:: ra • ;. 
years, and had held office, both, civil and military, under Stuyvesant 
Curacoa, Commissary Adrian Keyser, and Jesmer Thomas, captain in I 2 
navy." (Hist, of N. Neth., by O'Callaghan, vol. 2, pp. 19, 20.) 

1S76.] Military Officer of Peter Sturzesant. 99 

The new Director sailed from the Texel. with four ships, on Christmas 
dav, 1646. The fleet arrived in the latitude of the Canaries, and then, 
altering its course, stood away for Curacoa. off the north coast of 
Venezuela in South America. Touching at St. Christopher's, they seized a 
vessel called the Liefde, or Love, reported of (or fromj Schiedam, a town in 
South Holland, near Rotterdam. 

The historian presumes she was seized "owing to some informality in her 
papers." Without report or record of trial or condemnation, that may be as 
charitable a guess as any other. The Algerines used that excuse. If we 
look for English vessels bearing the English name "Love," we rind several, 
and one that brought passengers to New England, commanded bv Capt. 
Joseph Young, an early settler 0/ Southold, L. I., which may have sailed 
from Schiedam. If the vessel seized belonged to Schiedam, we do not 
perceive any right of seizure. But if to Pmgland. or bringing passengers 
this way without license, neither the king nor any government then of 
England was in condition, or perhaps desirous to resent such a seizure. 

The Fiscal, Van Dyck, claimed a seat in the council, or a voice in the 
disposal of the prize, but was rebuffed. If two of the council could agree, 
they might disregard the other. Yet the Fiscal was the proper officer to 
investigate and act in regard to prizes, being, by reason of tin's duty, 
allowed no share himself. It seems there was no regular investigation, 
none by this disinterested officer, and no account rendered. If Van Dyck, 
while at sea, was not in office, yet "he renewed the offer of his services at 
Curacoa." He was answered, " You are no Fiscal of Curacoa ; " and. u lest 
he should forget his position, he was confined three weeks to the ship, not 
permitted during that time to stroll ashore, though all the officers and even 
the soldiers were allowed to land to recruit themselves." 

Curacoa became noted as a place for contraband trade. It was well 
situated to become so. The Dutch ships, on this occasion, remained there 
at least three weeks, and possibly longer. If Bryan Newton was there in 
office, he was not favorably introduced to the Fiscal. Van Dyck. We 
suppose his wife had been residing there with him, and that she sailed with 
him for New York. It may be inferred that he had sons or relatives named 
Thomas and Henry Newton. If these were sons, they must have been 
born at Curocoa, or before in Holland. Henry may have come to New 
Amsterdam with them. Thomas, perhaps, came before they did. He was 
at Stamford in 1645, and at Fairfield, a witness, in 1646. 

The new Director, Stuyvesant, and his party arrived at the New 
Netherlands, New York, on nth .May, 1647. He continued the form of a 
council, such as his predecessor, Kieft, had, knowing, of course, that the 
supreme power was vested in the smaller council of only three, oi whom he 
was chief. And "as none of the company's officers could tolerably read 
or write the English language," it was said Ensign George Baxter was 
retained, who had been employed by Gov. Kieft. He may have had other 
merits, such as knowing persons and places and the details of previous 
transactions. Of the whole administration of Gov. Kieft, in church and 
state, army and navy, in action and in council, Baxter was the last one 
retained. Of course Capt. Newton became acquainted with Baxter. He 
must also have soon known Isaac Allerton and George Woolsey, who had 
been in Holland, and could talk Dutch as well as English, and who were 
active merchants and representatives of English traders. Woolsey was 
called before the new Director's council on 23d July, 1647, to testify against

Fiscal Van Dyck about so small an affair as receiving the present of a 
beaver skin from an English merchant-ship manager, Thomas Willett, who 
had been married at the Dutch church, New York. It must be assumed that 
Bryan Newton could talk English, and it would be very natural for him to 
speak to and become acquainted with Englishmen. 

" As the war with Spain continued, two of the Company's yachts, the 
"Cat" and the " Love," were despatched on a cruise to the West Indies, in 
the hope of falling in with and capturing some of the enemy's richly-laden 

The name of this last mentioned vessel indicates that the prize "of 
Schiedam" had been retained ; but for whose account is not so plain. 
According to Van Dyck many prizes were taken, and none either con- 
demned or accounted for. 

An investigation of various charges against the late Director Kieft's 
administration was sought. A Committee of nine prominent men was 
appointed on this topic, of whom Capt. Newton was one. The Commit- 
tee agreed with Director Stuyvesant that they had not been instructed to 
make such investigation, and forbore. Director Kieft left, and also his 
principal opponent, Dominie Bogardus. In place of the latter appeared 
the Rev. Johannes Backerus, previously pastor at Curacoa, with whom we 
may suppose Capt. Newton was well acquainted. 

Capt. Newton took part in the rough condemnation of Meiyn, and signed 
the decree "Thus done and enacted at the Assembly," 25th July, 1647 ; 
from which Melyn appealed to Holland. 

Director Stuyvesant and Vice- Director Van Dinklage could act together 
as a Council, but were yet without any co-operation with the Fiscal, 
Van Dyck. They professed to consult the remainder of the former Direc- 
tors' Council ; and, to give it increased force, added to it Captain Newton. 
The formal recognition of " the nine men," to represent the burghers 
(instead of the eight, who were half Englishmen), was proclaimed as 
"Done in Council, this 25th day of September, 1647," and signed by the 
others and by "Brian Nuton." On 13th October, in that year, Balthazar, 
a son of Director Stuyvesant, was baptized. The sponsors were " Capt. 
Lieut. Nuyton and his wife," with six other notables. On 3d November 
Charles Bridges, called by the Dutch Charles of the bridge (i.e. Carel 
Vander Brugge, or Ver Brugge), having arrived, he married Sarah (Cornell) 
widow of the first Thomas W'illett, of Bristol, then deceased ; and on 9th 
December, of the same year, George Woolsey married Rebecca Cornell, 
doubtless her sister. They, it is believed, were sisters of Thomas Cornell 
(written Cornelis), of Hertford Co., Eng., who married Elizabeth Fiscock, 
of Plymouth, Eng., at the Dutch Church, New York., in 1642, and had 
children baptized. This Cornell family, if from the same English county, 
would know something of Newton. 

In 1648, on 19th January, "Elsie Nutons," with Sergt. Daniel Lisco. — 
probably the Sergeant of Captain Newton's company. — and Mary Jacobs, 
were sponsors at the baptism of a daughter of Hendrick Wiilem,;en. On 
26th April, it is printed, that "Jonas Nuyting," with George and Rebecca 
Wolsie, and John Daly, »vere sponsors at the baptism of Rebecca, a 
daughter of Henry Bresart, or Br&sier. The latter was an Englishman. 
from Essex Co., Eng., who had married Susannah, — wid. of \\ "illiam Wath- 
ens (or Watkins), in October, 1644. We have seen no notice of any 
"Jonas Nuyting" or Newton. It probably was ' ; Tomas." 

jS;6.] Military Officer of Peter Stuyvcsant. IOI 

During the controversy which Vander Donk, Van Dyck, and others had 
with ' Stuyvesant, Capt. Newton was frequently mentioned. He was 
described as the firm and unflinching supporter of Stuyvesant ; " in dread 
of him, but honoring him as a benefactor." The opponents of Stuyvesant 
(on 13th October, 1649) supposed Newton did not understand the Dutch 
language, and was ignorant and inexperienced in the (Dutch) law ; a: least 
"unqualified to reply to the elaborately written opinions," and, as abbre- 
viated in rougher terms,—" being an Englishman, understands neither laws 
nor language." Called simply "Lieut, of the Military Company." he was 
summoned with Director Stuyvesant to appear and answer Melyn. at the 
Hague in Holland. Such a summons might take any one here by surprise. 
His verbal reply to the officer serving it was given, that he did not under- 
stand it, but would answer to-morrow. This was reported against him in 
Holland. Van Tienhoven and others defended him. saying " he not only 
•understands but speaks the Dutch language." No doubt he couid speak 
it ; having served the Company and been in association with Dutchmen a 
long time. He seems to have been a reserved, silent man. 

On 14th November, 1649, his' wife, written " Elsjie Nuytiens." with 
Thomas Hall (from Gloucester Co., England, married at the Dutch 
Church in Nov., 1641) and Mr. Van Cortlandt, were sponsors at the bap- 
tism of Adam, the son of Adam Mott ; doubtless the one from Essex Co., 
England, who married Jane Hulet, of Buckingham, at the Dutch church, 
in July, 1647. 

In January, 1650, Mr. Vander Donck, followed by Van Dyck and others, 
repeated in Holland the charge that Mr. Newton was ignorant of the law. 
When the papers are coolly examined, that seems rather a friendly and ex- 
cusatory defence of him than a harsh accusation. Plainly, a large portion 
of the power exercised by Stuyvesant had been vested in the council of 
three ; one of whom, Van Dyck, he did not consult at all. and with Van 
Durklage, the other, he presently disagreed, thus exercising arbitrarily all 
the power without them. Captain Newton acted throughout as a military 
subordinate, obeying his chief; but the order of a chief may not have formed 
a legal protection for an unauthorized act in civil affairs. On Jury 4th. 1650, 
Governor Stuyvesant declared his independence in open court, by saying 
he would not communicate to either of his counsellors a formal letter received 
from Holland. The two soon united in complaints against him. One com- 
plaint was that without tiieir concurrence or knowledge he had conveyed a 
great deal of land, mostly to the English. Another was that without them 
he had "appointed and commissioned as Lieutenant of a company of 
soldiers consisting of twenty-eizht men an Englishman named "Brian Nuton, 
who does not understand the Dutch language, and pronounces judgment 
with his honor on political and all other matters." The serious offence was 
in this last, — for the granting of land and appointing of military officer?, by 
English practice and probably by Dutch law, were mere executive act-, which 
the chief might perform without his council. But to make a full counsellor 
of this English soldier, and not consult his appointed Honorables. what an 
orfence ? It is hard to defend the Director without setting up the English- 
man as a better adviser than the other two. 

The complaints in form were made before a notary, on 19th Decer 
1650.^ La Montagnie was called in them a Frenchman, largely indebted to 
the Holland company, and " Carel Verbruggen" (Charles Bridges), a new 
counsellor and commissary, "an Englishman." Other charges were made

not so accurate, and strong protests against a merely military council. A 
picture was attempted to be painted of a standing army (of twenty-eight 
men !) and a military despotism under the Dutch Director and his Captain- 
Lieutenant. It does not deserve the ridicule of Irving. The small fort 
represented an empire. It was as important in operation, and greater in 
result, than many others of much larger numbers. 

Thus far we have noticed in the military officer nothing but silent and 
steady obedience to orders and performance of duty. Yet thus attacked 
and made a topic of contention, he could not long escape personal adven- 
tures. On 24th July, 1650, " Preyne Nuyting," and two others, were spon- 
sors at the baptism of a son of Casper Steymets. On the 7th of August, 
"Preyne Nuy ting," Sarah Van Brugge, and Susannah Bresier were spon- 
sors at the baptism of Sarah, a daughter of George Wolsey [who after- 
wards married the second William Hallet, and had a large family, from 
whom several members of our society are descended.] 

It seems the military officer and his wife attended church, and were reg- 
ular and orderly under Dutch rule. We have not the precise date of the 
Directors open collision with the Vice Director and Dutch counsellor. A 
witness of intelligence and respectability, not favoring Stuyvesant, described 
it in these words [and formally attested it on 2nd May, 165-1. We suppose 
it occurred somewhat earlier] : " Dincklagen " (the Vice-Director), ,; not 
being willing to depart from the council before, and until he, the Director, 
exhibited authority ; therefore Director Stuyvesant called the serjeant and 
two soldiers, who placed their guns beside the door, also Lieutenant New- 
ton and Ensign Baxter, who came to his assistance, and seized Dincklagen 
by the body, pushing him thus together by force out of the house, notwith- 
standing Mr. Dincklagen warned them to take good heed what they did. 
On the way to the guard-house, when they stood still a short time, he 
again warned them, but they proceeded with him and took him to the guard- 

This ended the career of Dincklagen, the Vice-Director : but not his 
complaints. We decide nothing about his merits or demerits, stating only 
the mode of exercising power, and the course pursued by Cant. Newton. 
Whether the latter had shortly before this been stimulated to obedience and 
devotion, or was so soon after, we cannot exactly report, but can give the 
dates and facts as they appear, in order. 

On 9th April, 1651, "Capt. Nuyting "and another were sponsors at the 
baptism of Lubbert Gerritsen's daughter; and on 27th April. 1651, he was 
granted a lot in New Amsterdam, now New York, about 6 rods wide and 
10^- rods deep, situate south-east of modern Broad street, bounded N. IV. 
by a lot granted to La Montagnie, and N. E. by a lot granted to N". de 
Sille, being low ground, part of land then called the sheep pasture, extend- 
ing near to modern William street, and probably as near the fort as any 
land then ungranted. De Side's lot can be traced, extending 24 rods 
from Broad street. It was confirmed by an English grant afterwards. 
Montagnie's lot was mentioned in 1669 [Valentine's Manual for 1S57. pp. 
510, 511, 554, and map of land as located by Valentine, not very accu- 
rate. Val. Man. for i860, p. 5 2 8, and for 1S61. pp. 577. 5S4I. The lots 
of Thomas Willett and Richard Smith, Englishmen, were not far from 
Newton's, fronting the river. It is reported that the Captain sold 
to J. H. Varravanger, and he in 1654 sold to Jacob Steendam (from Am- 
ersfort) who in 1656 sold to Strycker and Van Ruyven.

In July, 165 1, Capt. Newton was with the military force under Stuyve- 
sant,i on the Delaware, on Raccoon Creek, near Fort Christina, opposing 
the Swedish settlement under John Prince — acting the dog in the man- 
ger, by driving others away from wild land which the Dutch could not use 
themselves without too much dispersion. A conference was held with In- 
dians, who pretended they had sold no land to the Swedes except the mere 
site of Fort Christina. This was reduced to writing, dated 9th July, 1651, 
and certified by Wilhelmus Grasmeer, a cleric, Cornelius de Potter, Isaac 
AI!erto?i, Bryan Neivtou, George Baxter (three Englishmen), and others, 
including "Marten Cregier, Captain Lieutenant of New Amsterdam Bur- 
gess Company," and Abraham Staats, surgeon. This resulted in a military 
bargain, dated 30th July, 1651, reduced to writing, and signed by an In- 
dian sachem and by " Brian Newton, Geo. Baxter, Daniel Litschoe, Caspar 
Stevmets," and others. 

On 5th October, 1651, "Brian Nuyting" and two others were sponsors 
at the baptism of Jacobus, son of Adam Mot (or Mott), and on 3d Decem- 
ber "Brian and Elje Nuyting" were sponsors at the baptism of Jan, a 
son of Hendrick Jansen of Utrecht. On 17th August, 1652, "Elsje Nuy- 
tings" and "Elsje Hendricks" were the two female sponsors at the bap- 
tism of " Elje," a daughter of Thomas Baxter. And we must infer a good 
understanding, up to this time, between the two Englishmen thus employed 
by the Dutch. On 13th October, 1652, Elsje Nuton was one of the spon- 
sors at the baptism of George, the son of George«Wolsey. On 12th Janu- 
ary, 1653, "Brion Nuton, Capt.," and two others were sponsors at the 
baptism of Cornelius, the son of Cornelius Van Tienhoven, the Fiscal who 
had defended Newton in Holland, and had obtained the place of Van 
Dyck. On the next Sabbath, the 19th, "Brion Xuton," with Thomas Bax- 
ter and his wife, were sponsors at the baptism of Marcus, a son of John 
Hageman.. On 20th April "Thomas Hall, George Wolsey " (Englishmen), 
" Eisje Nuton, and Britje Baxter" (wives of Englishmen), were sponsors at 
the baptism of a child of " Rendel Hewits," and on 4th June. 1653. 
"Capt. Brian Nuton" and two others were sponsors at the baptism of 
"Jan, the son of Jan Maston" (meaning John, an Englishman, who mar- 
ried a Dutch wife in 1650). This was the last appearance of the English 
captain at a baptism in the Dutch church for nearly three years. And 
generally, at an earlier date, the names of Fhiglishmen had disappeared 
from the Dutch church records. 

War was being prosecuted On the sea between the Dutch and English 
nations with great energy, which ended disastrously for the Dutch. The 
English were without a king, and led by Cromwell. The Dutch at the 
outset were favored by many English loyalists. In this country the Eng- 
lish, if united, were much the strongest party. A large portion were unwil- 
ling to prosecute hostilities against their Dutch neighbors. On Long 
Island, some of the Dutch would join the English in maintaining, as far as 
practicable, a safe neutrality. But this grew more and more dithcult. The 
Dutch Government practically expelled the English from among them. 
The English at any rate left the western end of Long Island, and the neigh- 
borhood of New York, and retired eastward. Newtown, L. I., had I 
to be settled and cultivated in 1642, and made some progress up to 1652. 
It was nearly abandoned in 1653. Both parties adopted a war footing. 
Their native countries were at war. The particulars, much scattered, cannot 
be gathered. Serious complaints were early urged by the English against

the Dutch Director for arming the Indians, recently subdued. The com- 
plaints, presented in form and repeated, were denied by Stuyvesant, and it 
seems wantonly. They could be proved. The English offered to prove them, 
either at Flushing or Hempstead, before Dutch magistrates and a joint 
commission, requiring only an agreement that the witnesses should not be 
disturbed for giving their testimony. On the 12th May, 1653, a committee 
was sent from New England for this object. On the 23rd -May, after some 
procrastination, a formal answer to this was given, consenting that testimony 
be taken before Dutch officers, on certain terms and conditions quite 
different from those proposed. This was signed by (Director) Petrus 
Stuyvesant, (Baron) Werckhoven, (Captains) Bryan Nuton and Martin 
Krygier, and six others. The conditions imposed were not agreed to. A 
more peremptory demand was made by the English, while Stuyvesant forced 
the citizens to wall and fortify the city. The English disappeared from 
inside the walls, and from their fields on Manhattan Island, and generally 
from Kings and Queens counties on Long Island. Their places within the 
walls were rilled by Dutchmen from the farms outside seeking protection or 
security. Indians were, in arms. 

Before this formal answer of 23d May, Capt. Underhill, in Queens 
county, had prepared, on 20th May, and probably soon issued his martial 
proclamation, denouncing the Dutch Government, and inviting aid. He 
sought to rally his old English soldiers to join him. One incident of this — 
one of his causes of war — may have affected, or may have been specially aimed 
at Capt. Newton, whom Underhill of course knew. It accused Stuyvesant 
of acting treacherously towards Thomas Newton, in having promised him 
safe conduct at New York, and then having ordered his arrest and surren- 
der. If Thomas was a son or relative of Bryan the effect will be perceived. 
Thomas had been with Underhill in 1645, doubtless then young. On the 
16th April, 1648, he was married to Joan (or Jane) Smith, not preciseh 
identified. One of her name was a sponsor with Thomas Hall, the Englis 
man, at New York, on 2d Feb., 1648. As reported by opponents, he was 
married by William Hailett, acting as a magistrate of Newtown and Flushing, 
and if so, in a form doubtless satisfactory to Cromwell's parliament, and to 
Quakers ; but not approved by the old State churches, Dutch or i . 
This deserves a closer examination. He was complained of and prosecuted 
by English royalists, or by strict churchmen, for this supposed irregularity 
of marriage and breach of their law, but perhaps merely to prevent him 
acting as a soldier. He came to New Amsterdam. He was not arrested in 
Connecticut, nor on Long Island, but it seems was surrendered by Stuyve- 
sant upon the demand of some English magistrate — probably a royaiis:. 

At this period it is difficult to trace Capt. Newton accurately. Apparently 
he did not use his arms against his own countrymen ; as indeed he ought not. 
In fact there was no battle between them. The Dutch were safe within 
the new walls of their city. Some preparations ordered by Cromwell to 
capture it were arrested by peace. 

In May, 1654, peace was proclaimed at New Amsterdam. Many of the 
Dutch and English then attempted to renew their old friendships. 
was difficult. Dutchmen, greatly disappointed, especially the officials led 
by Stuyvesant, were angry at Englishmen for not adhering to them during 
the war, and especially at Cromweliians. Lands, before granted to : se, 
were promptly re- granted to others. Baron Werckoven had a larg 
on Long Island, of land which before the war had been granted to and occu-

pied by Englishmen. The lands of Englishmen in New York were seized. 
With few exceptions they were summarily treated as alien enemies, or 
attempted to be punished for their adherence or friendship to the English 
during the war. 

Soon after the peace, Newtown, L. I., filled up considerably. It was the 
nearest settlement of Englishmen towards the Dutch. Although the Dutch 
Directors had made some grants there during the war, it was not much 
occupied by Dutchmen. Henry Newton was a resident of Mespath, a part 
of Newtown. Thomas Newton was afterwards, and probably before, a 
landholder there. " Newton's Point, or the Green Hook," was granted 
bv the Director to Jean Gerardy (Freiieh) on 5th November, 1653. About 
100 acres at Mespath, on 15th December, 1654, were granted to Ensign 
c Dirck Smith (where 50 acres had been granted in 1645 to Dirck Volker- 
tens). It is supposed it was his relative that Thomas Newton had married 
before the Magistrate of Newtown. v " -- - 

Director Stuyvesant was absent from 24th December, 1654, until nth 
July, 1655, in the West Indies, with three vessels under his command, 
" seeking to open and establish a trade there ; " perhaps ready to take some 
merchant vessels whose papers might be deemed informal. But he was 
"placed under embargo," and even his trade prevented by English armed 
ships prosecuting hostilities against Spaniards. His humour was not 

On Stuyvesant's return, he found the Swedes, with some aid, had dis- 
turbed the Dutch on the Delaware. He had orders from Holland to sub- 
due them ; and remained but a short time at New Amsterdam. He set 
sail from the Hudson 7th September, 1655, in seven vessels, with, as reported, 
six hundred or seven hundred men. Capt. Dirck (or Richard) Smith was 
an active officer. The Swedes, overpowered, soon capitulated. The 
Director was absent about a month, until 12th October, 1655. 

During his absence, with nearly all the Dutch force to sustain him, 
Indians of the interior, in armed array, reported from Esopus, Hackensack, 
and Tappan, north, and from Stamford and Uncaway 'Fairfield) east, in 
large numbers, estimated from 500 to 1800 strong, entered New Amster- 
dam, landing suddenly before daylight, from 64 canoes, on 15th September, 
only eight days after Stuyvesant had sailed. They committed some mis- 
chief and. caused a great fright; but were repulsed from the city and fort 
by the home guard. A few on each side were killed or wounded. The 
Indians, infuriated, then visited Hoboken, set the houses or. fire, and killed 
all the Dutch there but one family. They then invaded Staten Island and 
killed many there. By report, in three days the Dutch lost ioc people killed 
and 150 captured. The latter were soon after ransomed, and without 
great expense. Many buildings were burnt. The Indians of Long Island 
and Westchester County were apparently quiet. Some of iheiu had been 
deprived of arms. They had been impressed with an. opinion of the 
strength of the English (especially under Underhill), and of their righting 
qualities, not then forgotten, and had treaties with them. But they knew 
of this foray, and perhaps some of them joined it. They told the English 
settlers to keep themselves separate from the Dutch. 

Henry Newton and Thomas Newton, who by inference were sons or rel- 
atives of Bryan, and Mr. Jessup, ouq of the principal E.._ ish settlers at 
Newtown, were at New Amsterdam on the night of the :..*: doubtless 
bringing there some warning of it, and they assisted tfc ! te\ ulse of the 

jq6 Biographical Sketch of Capt. Bryan Newton, [J U L V > 

Indians. U Capt. Newton, as supposed, was with Stuyvesant, his wife no 
doubt was at the fort. It was but a natural duty for sons to defend her 
from Indians. 

Vengeance was threatened by the Indians against these three English- 
men who visited the Dutch and caused the defeat of their main object. 

The Dutch on Dong Island were also threatened by Indians ; some of 
whom not absent against the Swedes had rushed down to protect Brook- 
lyn and to recover the women and children of Staten Island and Hoboken. 
One Dutchman of Newtown was surprised at night by Indians in canoes 
and carried into captivity. The alarm was great until Stuyvesant returned, 
and the people were afterwards easily frightened. The disturbance could 
with difficulty be quieted. 

On 13th, 16th, and 20th October, 1655, Director Stuyvesant, having 
returned, wrote letters or orders to Capt. Bryan Newton, " Capt. Lieut, in 
Amersfort" (Elatlands), then the eastern settlement of Dutchmen, and the 
most exposed to Long Island Indians, urging an organized defence against 
Indians. It may be inferred from the letters that Capt. Newton had been 
promptly sent there with a small force of Dutch soldiers, and was expected to 
be joined and sustained by all the Dutch farmers of Long Island. Without 
discipline, they had been too badly frightened to be good soldiers. Some 
of them were new settlers ; and such as could not talk with Englishmen. 
or had taken possession of land improved by Englishmen, were perhaps as 
distrustful and fearful of the English as of the Indians. One of the most 
serious results of all this upon the Dutch was its preventing emigration 
of new settlers from abroad. 

On 2d January, 1656, "Capt. Bryan Newton" was again at the Dutch 
church in New Amsterdam. He was the sole sponsor at the baptism of 
Casparus, a son of Augustyn Heermans, a merchant and surveyor from 
Bohemia ; probably a neutral between Dutch and English, who had pur- 
chased a lot in New Amsterdam in 165 1, and married there. He was per- 
mitted to sell the lot, in 1655. to Rutger Jacobsen, an Albany merchant. 
called "free-trader," who having found the northern region unsafe, sought 
a place of greater security at New York. (Val. Man. for 1861, p. 579). 
The like course was pursued by several others. The Dutch had to con- 
tract instead of expand. 

In 1656 Director Stuyvesant unwisely repeated toward Englishmen in 
Westchester County the rough course which before the war he had prac- 
tised against Capt. Patrick and others, insisting without debate, and by 
violence, upon his jurisdiction and ownership of wild land in modern West- 
chester County. The treaty negotiating a boundary line had not been 
ratified nor exchanged, and had been cancelled by the war. The Dutch 
righting with the English had been driven out of possession (if they had any) 
by Indians, or had abandoned it. 

On 6th March, 1656, Capt. De Koninck (probably master of a Dutch 
armed vessel), Capt. Newton, and the Attorney-General (De Siile, so 
termed) were ,; secretly sent with a suitable force" to arrest persons called 
leaders of disturbances, in fact Englishmen invited there by Thomas Bell, 
against whom no proof appears of any disturbance, except that of buying 
lands from Indians in Westchester Count}', and improving them without 
asking Dutch leave. Capt Newton on this occasion it seems was used, but 
not in chief command. He probably had more prudence than either of the 
Dutch chiefs. He had wit enough to perceive the Dutch would have brief

success in any war with the English, and were too weak to fight the Indians, 
except from the fort, and might be hurt themselves. The armed party set 
.ut, and on reaching the place (afterwards Oostdorp) were met by Lieut. 
Thomas Wheeler and other English settlers having arms at hand and pre 
pared to use them, " as the land was their own." But there was a judicious 
• arlev, and it was concluded not to have an open fight, peace having recently 
i et:n 'proclaimed. The English settlers submitted to an arrest; the men 
were disarmed, twenty-three persons were taken prisoners without legal 
warrant, carried to Manhattan, and placed on board " The Balance" a= 
prisoners. Stuyvesant had ordered his armed force to notify the settlers to 
remove their furniture within three days and destroy their buildings. They 
ilid neither. We have no information of buildings destroyed. Probably the 
officers and Dutch force had seen and felt enough of Indian burnings not 
to be ambitious of imitating the savages. Some of the prisoners, called run- 
aways {i.e., from the Dutch) were sent to jail. Others, "innocently lured to 
settle on the Company's land, were placed under civil arrest and lodged 
in the City Hall," then the City Hotel. All this amounted to an abandonment 
of any criminal accusation, or hostile and warlike course; and it showed 
that the mode of arrest by soldiers under arms and without warrant was 
wrong. It was necessary to abandon the whole. So presently, as pretended. 
u on the remonstrance of their wives," and " in consideration of the inclement 
season of the year," the churlish Director and his council (parading the 
charity they had violated), ordered the prisoners " set at liberty, if they would 
promise on oath to depart from the district within six weeks and not return 
without permission." They made no such oath nor promise. But they had 
learned that the English at the eastward would not sustain them, except by 
remonstrance, and they signed a petition expressing their willingness to 
submit to the Director's government, so long as they continued within his 
jurisdiction. They acted courageously, and this was a wise course. As they 
could not be frightened, nor safely held, they were discharged, and were 
soon admitted as settlers of a new town, under the Dutch organization, 
called East Dorp ; and they were permitted, under light restrictions, to govern 
tiiemselves. Oaths of allegiance were sought, but generally declined. The 
principal men who had been prisoners were made Dutch magistrates, and 
Messrs. Wheeler, Newman, Lord, Rose, Jenner, Bayley, and others became 
ancestors of very reputable descendants. The folly of treating them so 
roughly, perhaps, afterward appeared ; but not a word of incivility is alleged 
against Capt. Xewton. 

Director Stuyvesant, full of hostile notions, quick to resort to fraud or 
violence, obstinate, proud, and irascible, ceuid not soon be cooled down to 
avoid such foolish proceedings. He tried them on Long Island, but became 
somewhat tempere ', in face of the manifest and increasing strength of the 
English. It is probable the coolness and steadiness of his old " Captain- 
Lieutenant," as well as of the arrested Englishmen, tended to prevent 
hostilities- The English were soon again permitted to take land briefs 
from the Director, and Capt. Xewton had some favors. On 26th Feb., 
'^56, Capt. Erancis Eyn was granted about fifty acres on Long Island, near 
the city. On 15th March, 1656, " Capt. Xuyton's huis vrow," with 
N'icasius de Silla, the Eiscal, were sponsors at the baptism of Aeltie. . 
daughter of Capt. Dirck Smith. X'early five years afterwards, on 10th Jan., 
1661, "Capt. Nuyting" made his next appearance at the Dutch church, 
as sponsor, with two others, for two children of " Dirck Smidt," not tfien

called Captain. A friendly intimacy with this soldier Smith's family may 
at least be inferred. Probably it resided at Newtown, L. 1. | '- - 

That place filled up faster than others. It was still the abode of 
Englishmen nearest to the Dutch. For a while there was a difficulty in 
obtaining satisfactory titles. A subscription was raised to buy out all 
Indian claims, and to pay expenses, amounting to one shilling per acre. On 
21st March, 1656, a Dutch grant was given for Rustdorp. now Jamaica, L. 
I., and on 12th April, 1656, a new grant was given for Middleburj, now 
Newtown. Between the dates there were only some grants to De Side, 
Dutch official, one for about 250 acres at Mespat, in Newtown. He could 
see that a strong English settlement near it would soon make the land 

For Newtown, the list of subscribers is preserved, with fifty-five names. 
Edw^ard Jessup and Robert Coe, each £4; R. Gildersleeve, £2. 10s. ; 
John Gray, £2 5s.; John Moore, the clergyman, Thomas Stephcn-on from 
Southold, and William Herrick from Southampton, each £.2 ; and Brian 
Newton and one other, each £1 13s. 4& [representing thirty-three acres] ; 
others various smaller sums, including Thomas Newton, 15s. Only two or 
three of the names appear to be Dutch. [Riker's Newtown, p. 43J. Brian 
Newton, it thus appears, aided the settlement and became a landholder of 
Newtown. Only seven others contributed larger. This town, on the 
south side of the East River, stretched past Hurl Gate, where the river was 
narrow, and was opposite to East Dorp and the early settlements in West- 
chester County. The English, hazarding such attacks as had slaughtered 
Throckmorton, Anne Hutchinson, and others, could cross the river and 
escape, oFeTse protect each other. 

At Jamaica, also, Bryan Newton was soon found to be a landholder, and 
there he finally fixed his residence. In 1660 he was named as a freeholder 
there. (2 Thomp. L. I., 98.) 

In 1659, Ensign Dirck Smith had the command of a small fort at 
Esopus. Six or seven of his band, contrary to his, orders, left the fort at 
night and fired at some noisy and drunken Indians, killed some of them, 
and then retreated to the fort. This resulted in an inflamed Indian war. 
"A terrible horror overpowered the citizens." Capt. Newton and Lieut. 
Stilwell were despatched to all the English and Dutch villages for volun- 
teers and soldiers, and a force was raised of one hundred drafted men, 
forty volunteers, twenty-five Englishmen, and as many Long Island Indians. 
The attack on Esopus ceased, after much destruction, before the>e arrived. 

In 1660, Captain-Lieutenant Newton and N. Varlett were sent to Vir- 
ginia, to form a treaty and obtain soldiers. Peace was made with many 
Indians. Ensign Smith, with forty men at first and afterwards seventy-five, 
..o prosecuted hostilities against the Indians of Esopus. and made 1 risoners. 
His and the Director's harshness bred further hostilities. Martin Crygier 
became chief military officer. 

Capt. Newton had become aged, and retired from active service. He 
was no longer a Dugald Dalgetty in the service oi strangers, and fell back 
into association with his native countrymen ; but apparently he look no 
part in the attempt to annex Long Island to Connecticut. In March. 
1663, he bought of Luke Watson, of Crafford (the new English name oi 
Rustdorp, afterwards Jamaica], a house and home-lot. Watson engaged to 
build a barn on it, forty-two feet long and twenty feet deep ; to be : latched, 
its sides and ends boarded, with a lean-to on one side. The Caj

to find twelve boards for doors, and nails for the whole. This, for the 
period and state of the country, was quite respectable. 

Not a whisper has been heard, not a word found in writing, impeaching 
his prudence, his courage, his faithfulness, or military skill. 

In 1664, when the English captured New York from the Dutch Director, 
we observe no note of any activity of the old soldier. 

In 1665, Feb. 5, when the first English patent for Jamaica was given by 
Gov. Nicoll, he was named as one of the patentees. (2 Thomp. L. I., 104.) 

In 1680, fifteen years later, we find arrangements made by him and his 
wife Alice (still living), for the care of them in their old age, by Mr. George 
Wolsey, Jr., at whose baptism she had assisted in 1652. Two deeds were 
put on record. By one, dated 20th December, Mr. Newton and his wife 
sold his lot and meadow, and moveables " thereto pertaining," to Mr. 
Wolsie, Jr., for the labor and pains promised and specified, " to be his 
after the decease of me and .my wife. And meantime he is to maintain 
all the fences during the life of either of us. And in case either of us 
shall be necessitated to sell any part of said homestead for our subsistence 
or necessary supply for our comfort, then Wolsie shall give the valuation 
" that any other would give for it." 

In 16S6, six years later, he was again named on the second patent for 
Jamaica, dated in that year. (2 Thomp. L. I., 125.) 

That is our latest account of him, and we have no exact trace of any 

In 1702, one Captain Thomas Newton was commander of the brigantine 
called "The Land of Goshen " of Port Royal, Jamaica, and in 1704 was 
driven from his vessel by a mutiny of his crew. There is nothing to indi- 
cate him as the one above described but the papers recorded in New York. 
(Lib. 26 of Deeds.) 

Another Thomas Newton, called Governor Sloughter's xAttorney-General. 
was reported born in England on 10th January, 1661. He appeared at New 
York in 1689 to ^oi, and afterwards in Massachusetts, making a bad mark 
in the witchcraft trials ; reported died in New Hampshire, 1721. 

There were Newtons on Long Island who may have descended from 
Henry named in 1673 ; and others in New England. We need not pursue 

Other persons above named have each a separate history, and all it is 
thought worth preserving. We have scarcely space for a sample. Lieutenant 
Wheeler probably settled at East Hampton. Nicholas Bayley was at New 
Haven in 1644. After his imprisonment, he was appointed by Governor 
Stuyvesant, in 1660, one of the first magistrates of East Dorp. In 1662 he 
was again nominated, but difficulties occurred from the claims of Connecti- 
cut. In 1663 he was again appointed. In 1664 he joined in a surrender 
of land to Thomas Pell, pursuant to an alleged agreement made at the close 
of the war in 1654. In 1667 he was one of the patentees in Nicoll's first 
English patent, and he was one of the first persons to whom land was al- 
lotted. He had a son, John, and daughters. In 16S6-7 he executed a deed 
to his son John ; but in the will which he left, naming his son, he gave only 
j£$ to John, making provision for his daughters. John was doubtless his 
heir-at-law. It is not improbable that he was the same John who went to 
school at Southold, and married there Marv Conklin^ : taxed there in 1683. 
ut absent in 1686. No doubt he was the same John who, on 6th January. 
'686, was named in Governor Dongan's patent of Westchester as one of the

trustees. On 6th February, 1694, he was present at a meeting of the trus- 
tees ; and on 16th April, 1696, named as one of the first aldermen of the 
Borough of Westchester, in the charter granted by Governor Fletcher. 
He was sworn in on 8th June, and acted afterwards. Of course he 
and his family can be traced. And so of the others. But -enough now.

In the possession of Dr. John C. Jay, of Rye, Westchester County, 
New York, is the family Bible of Augustus Jay, the first of this family in 
America. The following record, written in old French, is begun on the 
inside of the last cover of the book, continued on the fly-leaf immediately 
preceding, and is that of Augustus Jay himself. It states his own birth at 
Rochelle, in 1665, his marriage, in New York, in 1697, to Anna Maria, or 
Anne Marie, Bayard, second daughter and third child of Balthazar Bayard 
and Maria Loockermans his wife, and the births, marriages, and deaths, in 
his family, as they occur, down to 1739, when the record ends. 

Balthazar Bayard was the eldest son of Nicholas Bayard by his wife Anna 
Stuyvesant, sister of the Director Peter Stuyvesant, with whom, being then 
a widow with three sons (Balthazar, Peter, and Nicholas), she came from 
Holland to New Amsterdam, where they all landed on May 14, 1647. The 
volume itself is a large and heavy folio, in French, published at Amsterdam 
in 1707, containing notes to the text and some curious copperplate illus- 
trations and maps. It has two title-pages, the first a large and elaborate 
copperplate engraving representing Moses delivering the law. with various 
other Jewish and Christian emblems and allegorical devices. In the centre of 
the engraving is an open book, bearing on its leaves these words in rive 
lines ofsmall capitals : *• La Sainte Bible, Explimiee par Mr. Martin.' - In 
front of, and below, the open leaves, upon a stand, appears a censer of burn- 
ing incense, the smoke of which partially covers the page so inscribed. 
Beneath the plate are the words '; A Amsterdam chez H. Desbordes, P. 
Mortier & P. Brunei, Libraires," in small capitals. 

The printed second title gives the date M.DCCV'N., and Amsterdam 
as the place, of publication, and states that the notes to the text and the 
prefaces to the Old and New Testaments are by David Martin, Pastor of 
the Walloon Church of ; ' Utrecth. : ' 

The book has no clasps, is bound in old calf with gilt back and edges, 
and has the top, front, and bottom finished in black and red mottling, now 
faded with. age, but perfectly distinct when the volume is closed. 

Following the record of Augustus Jay. is here given that of his only 
son, Peter Jay. This is not from any Bible, but from an old manuscript on 
a sheet of quarto paper in the possession ot~ the writer, to whom it 
has descended from his maternal great-grandmother, Eve Jay, the eldest 
child of Peter Jay, who married the Rev. Dr. Harry Munro, the : 
rector of St. Peter's Church, Albany, prior to the Revolution. It gives 
his marriage to Mary, daughter of Jacobus van Cortlandt of Yonkers, 
and the births of his ten children, the seventh child and sixth son. John,

being -the " celebrated Governor of Xew York and Chief-Justice of the 
I'nited States, the deaths of two sons and one daughter, the marriage of 
his eldest daughter, Eve, and the birth of her only child Peter Jay Munro, 
extending from 1728 to 1767. 

Both records are given verbatim. The first is in old Erehch, except 
five entries, which Are in English. The abbreviation "M r ." is for Monsieur, 
" parrain " and " marraine " mean godfather and godmother, and 
"eglise" church; " p r ," which often occurs, is an abbreviation of " pour," 
for. Sometimes the same word is spelled differently in different entries, and 
the old spelling of the French names of the months and days of the week is 
used throughout. The punctuation of the original is also retained. With 
these explanations, it is believed that the record will be understood by 
any one, though not conversant with French. The first live entries of 
Augustus's record have no marginal dates, but they have here been added, 
that the eye may easily follow the sequence of dates from the beginning. 

The entry of the baptism of Peter Jay Munro is on a separate paper, 
in the handwriting of his father the Rev. Dr. Harry Munro, fastened to 
the manuscript. A few of the -first entries in Peters record appear also 
in that of his father. The last two entries are in Peter Jay Munro's hand- 

Xone of the sons of Peter Jay, except Chief-Justice John Jay, the 
sixth, left issue, nor did either of his daughters, except his eldest child 
Eve, wife of Dr. Harry Munro. The descendants of these two children 
are therefore the only representatives of Peter Jay. 

Chief-Justice Jay married, in April 1774, Sarah, youngest daughter of 
Gov. William Livingston, of New Jersey, and had two sons — Peter Augustus, 
born 24th Jan., 1776, and William, born 16th June, 1789, who both left 
issue ;* and four daughters, Susan, Maria, Ann, and Sarah Louisa, of whom 
Maria, the wife of Goldsborough Banyar (the son of that Goldsborough 
Banyar who was so long the Provincial Deputy Secretary of Xew York) 
was the only one who married, but she left no issue. All the Chief-Justice's 
children are dead. 

The only child of Eve Jay and Dr. Harry Munro, Peter Jay Munro, 
married Margaret, second daughter of the Hon. Henry White of the 
Governor's Council of the Province of New York and his wife Eve.f 
second daughter of Frederick Van Cortland of Yonkers, and Frances Jay, 
his wife, third daughter of Augustus Jay, and had four sons, Peter Jay, Peter 
Jay second, Henry, and John White, of whom only Henry had issue, and 
tight daughters. Margaret, Mary, Frances (wife of the Right Rev. William 
H. De Lancey, Bishop of Western New York), Harriet (wife of Augustus 
Frederick Van Cortlandt, of Yonkers), Mary second, Anne- Maria (wife of 
Klias Desbrosses Hunter), Sarah Jay (wife of Asa Whitney), and Cordelia. 
Except Sarah Jay Whitney, all his married daughters left issue. His 
children are now all dead except John W. Munro and Mary Munro 
Second. His own death took place on 2 2d September, 1S33. 

Augustus Jay escaped from Rochelle at the Revocation of the Edict of 

* Dr. John. C. Jay of Rye is the eldest son of the former, and the Hon. John Jay of 
Bedford is the only son of the latter. The youngest son of the former, named Peter 
Augustus, afies-his father, married Josephine Pearson, of Washington, D.C, both are 
now dead, having left one child only, Mr. Augustus Jay of New Vork.

Egbert Wouterszen from Yselstein, a town in Holland, was residing 
June 20th, 1640, at Jan de Lachers Hook, (at present Mill Creek Point, 
Jersey City,) at which date he gave a receipt for three imported milch cows 
and three mares hired from the West India Company. He took the lease 
of a bouwery, Dec. 1, 1646, on Manhattan Island, and May 10, 1647. ob- 
tained a patent for a tract of land called in Indian Apopcalyck, lying across 
the North River, west of the Manhattans. 1 He was enrolled a small 
burgher of New Amsterdam, April 17, 1657, and married, Sept. 1, 1641, 
Engel Jan Van Breestede, widow of Jan Janszen. He died about 16S0, 
without issue. It appears that his wife had by her first husband the follow- 
ing named children, who are described in a deed dated May 20, 1683, as 
the children and co-heirs of Egbert Wouterse, late of the city of New York, 
deceased. - 

1. Jan Janszen Van Breestede who ra. Nov. 1, 1647, Marritje Lucas 
j. d. of New Amsterdam. In the New York D. C. Baptismal records she 
is called Marritje Andries. They had a large family of children who com- 
prised the third generation of the Breestede family of New York. 

2. Tryntje Janszen Van Breestede who m. June 3, 1646, Ruth Jacob- 
szen of Renselaerswyck, (Rutger Jacobse Van Schoenderwoert or Van 
Woert), and whose descendants assumed the surname of Rutgers. 

3. Dorothea Jans Van Breestede who, tn. April 19. 1650, Volckert 
Janszen from Fredrickstadt, and whose descendants comprise the . Douw 
family of New York. 2 

4. Elsje Jans Van Breestede, who m. 1st, May 17, 1643, Adriaen Peters- 
zen Van Alcmaer. widower of Grierie Pieters, of whom presently. She 
married 2d Hendrick Jochemse of Esopus. 


On the 3d of Feb. 1640. Adriaen Petersen of Alcmaer, purchased of 
Hendrick Petersen of Vesel, a pIar*$atio*i near the reed valley, hard by 
Sappokanisj.-i (Greenwich) on the' Island of Manhattan. This is the hrs't 
notice found of him. On the ;:h September, 1645, he obtained a patent 
for a lot of land north of the fort, and April 1 5, 1647. another for a tract 
near Sappokanican. He married Mar 17, 1643, Elsje Jans Van 
tede, dan. of Jan Janszen and E: igei Jans: Van Breestede, and the step- 
dau. of Egbert Wouterszen. A: : -.-: :' ne ■.:" his marriage he was the wid-

terszen, husband and guardian of Engel Jans, her mother, for damages 
on account of Elsje's marriage engagement before her term of service to 
him had expired. On the trial of the case Sept. u, 1642, she testified 
that her mother and another woman had brought a young man to Staten 
Island whom she had never seen before, and desired her to marry him ; 
she declined at first, as she did not know him. and had no inclination to 
marry, but finally consented. She concluded her testimony by returning 
in court the pocket-handkerchief she had received as a marriage preset. 
On the 16th October following, she made a declaration that she sent for 
Adrian Pietersen, and that on his coming to Staten Island she accompanied 
him on board his yawl. A week later, Melyn aud the Fiscal had Pietersen 
before the court charged with Elsje's abduction. Pietersen was ordered to 
bring her into court, deliver her to Melyn, and receive her again from him 
on giving security for the payment of any damages that Melyn may have 

He died prior to July 3, 1664, on which day Jan Janse from Breeste, 
(Jan Janse Breestede) guardian of his orphan children, petitioned for com- 
pensation for part of a lot belonging to his estate at the Marketficld in 
New Amsterdam.* His widow married Hendrick Jochemse of the Esopus,

in the D. C. Marriage records. In the Baptismal records it rightly 
appears William Walton. He was probably the son of Thomas Walton 

and ■ Lawrence, whose m. 1. is dated Dec. 16, 16 71. Thomas Walton 

resided at Sraten Island, and was arrested July 8, 16S9, and confined in the 
fort at New York for having said that he would retake the fort (from Leis- 
ler) with 200 men. He deceased prior to Dec. 12,* 1689, at which date an

his wife is named Annetje Ten Eyck. No other notice of the children of 
Gabriel Thomaszen Stridles named in his will, has been found. 

(first three generations.) 

The head of this family was in New Amsterdam as early as 1644, fol- 
lowing the vocation of Pilot. In the record of his marriage, Jan. 17, 
1649, t0 Baertje Hendricks Kip, j. d. from Amsterdam, he is called Jan 
Janszen. j. m. Van Tubingen, probably the town of that name in Suabia, 
in Germany. At the baptism of his children his name is variously re- 
corded, Jan Janszen Van St. Cubis, Van St. Ubus, Van St. Obyn, Jan 
Van Sara, Jan Wanshaer Van St. Benen, Jan Wanshaer 1 (sometimes writ- 
ten Manshaer), and Jan de Caper, i.e. in English Jan the Sailor. He 
was admitted to the rights of a small burgher April 18. 1657, and appears 
to have been one of the substantial and respectable citizens of the city. 
His name and that of his wife is recorded in the list of Old Members of 
tiie Dutch Church, or of those who joined the church between 1649 and 
1660. He resided on Bromuer Straat, now that part of Stone street 
between Broad and Whitehall streets. 

His widow married 2d, Dec. 12, 1677, Jan Dirckszen Meyer, widower of 
Tryntje [Andriesse] Grevenraet.* She .survived her second husband, by 
whom she had no children, and was living July 12th, 1702. By her first 
husband she had issue. 1. Abraham," bap. Nov. 14, 1649; 2. Johannes," 
bap. Aug. 27, 1651 ; 3. Jacob, 2 bap. July 13, 1653; 4. Hendrick, 3 I

There is nothing more perplexing to one engaged in tracing the pedi- 
grees of the early Dutch settlers, than the changes sometimes found in 
the name of the same individual. Among these will be noted those which 
occur in the children of a widow upon her remarriage, who frequently bear 
the name of their stepfather, as well as their proper Dutch patronymic. 
Thus the name of Elsje Elberts, daughter of Elbert Janszen and Elsje 
Jans, after her mother's second marriage to Otto Grim, is sometimes 
recorded Elsje Grim. So we find Elsje Tymens, after the third marriage 
of her widowed mother to Govert Loockermans, called Elsje Loockermans, 
as though she was his putative daughter instead of his step daughter. 

Elsje Tymens (Thymens) wife of Pieter Corn. Van der Veen and 
daughter of Thymen and Marritje Janszen, "was born in. New Amsterdam. 
Her father was a ship carpenter and must have come to New Netherland 
as early as 1633, perhaps with Director General Wouter Van T wilier in 
April of that year. On the 16th of April 1639, tnen aged 36 years, he 
made before Secretary Cornells Van Tienhoven, with Jacob Hoffelseti 
(Stoffelseri ?), overseer, aged about 37 years, and Gillis Petersen Van der 
Gouw, house carpenter, aged 27 years,- a deposition in regard to the 
dilapidated state of the Fort, and the bad condition of affairs generally at 
Xew Amsterdam, at the time of the arrival, March 28, 163S, of Director 
William Kieft in the ship Haring.* In 1642, he obtained a patent for 
land on Mespat Kill, L. I., and July 3, 1643, one for land on Manhattan 
Inland, and another, July 13, the same year for land on Long Island. He 
died soon after. - Her mother, Marritje Janszen, was a daughter of Trvn 
Jonas (Jansen ?) midwife at New Amsterdam, and a sister of Ann eke Jans 
who married — first, Roelof Janszen, and second, the Rev. Everardus 
"Ogardus. She married her second husband, Dirck Corneliszen j. m. van 
"ensveen, Aug. 28, 1646, by whom she had Cornells (I)irckszen), baptized 
March 17, 1647; he married Nov. 17, 1672, Grietje Hendricks of New 
*ork, daughter of Hendrick Willemszen, and had son Dirck, baptized 
March 2, 1674. Cornells Dirckszen, above named, deceased before May 
'^78, and his widow, Grietje Hendricks, married October, 167S, John 
Robinson, merchant of New York, and had Marie, baptized July 18, 16S3, 

* ColL N. Y. Hist. Society, vol. I, New Series, p. 279. 

124 Ancient Families of New York. [Jul\-, 

and Grietje baptized October 12, 1634. Dirck Corncliszen, the second 
husband of Mamtje Janszen, was living in August, 1647, but had decease i 
before August, 29, 1648, at which date his widow gave a power of attorney 
to William Turck and Seth Verbrugge to receive certain accounts, &c, '.. 
the hands of Wouter Van Twiller at Amsterdam. '" She married, third, 
Govert Loockerman?,- by whom she had son Jacob, baptized .March 17. 
1652 ; he was a physician and settled in the county of St. Mary, Province 
of Maryland. For an account of his descendants see Vincent's History ot 
Delaware, vol. 1, p. 474. Govert Loockermans died about 1670, and his 
widow was buried Nov. 20, 1677. 3 In her will, dated May 7, 1677, wit!: 
codicil, dated Xov. 1, she is styled Mrs Mary Jansen, widow of Gover: 
Lockermans, and names the three children of her daughter Elsce Lysler by 
Peter Cornells Van der Veen deceased, as follows : Cornelius, Timothy, 
and Margaretta, to whom she gives the sum of one hundred guilders (>>^a 
in beavers, at eight guilders a piece ; to Anna, daughter of William Bogardu-, 
the sum of fifty guilders in beavers. Names as her universal lieirs, her 
children Elsie Tymans, married with Jacob Leysler ; Cornells Dirkse 
married with Grietie Hendrickse, and Jacob Lockermans not married. 
Makes a small bequest to Mary Van Brugh, daughter of Mr. Johannes Van 
Brugh, and to Susannah Leysler, her said daughter's daughter. Appoints 
her cousin, Mr. Johannes Van Brugh and .Mr. Francis Rombouts Alder- 
man, of this city, executors. 

Elsje Tymexs m. i rst Jan. 7, 1652, Pieter Corn. Vax der Veen j. m. 
from Amsterdam. The first notice of him is found in the record of his 
marriage. He was a merchant in New Amsterdam, admitted to the rights 
of a small burgher April 11, 1657, and in 1658 was appointed one of the 
Commissioners to treat with the Esopus Indians. Soon after his marriage 
he erected the first brick house built in this city, and situated on the 
present westerly side of Whitehall between Pearl and State Streets. He 
was the principal projector in company with Cornelius de Potter, of the 
first ship, the "New Love" known to have been built at this port. 1 He 
died in 166 1, and his widow married Jacob Leisler, of whom hereafter. 
Pieter Cornelisen Van der Veen and Elsje Tymens had issue : 

1. Corxelis, bap. October 27, 1652 ; m. Magdalexa Wolsum and 
prob. d. s. p. His widow m. April 25, 16S3, Leexdert Huygen dl 
Cleyx (de Kleyn), of whom hereafter. 

2. Timothy, born 1654? There is no record found of his baptism ; he 
was sponsor at the baptism of Johannes, son of Robert Walters, May 22 
16S7, which is is the last notice found of him.

Early Settlers of Hackensack, JV. J. 




I send you a list of the early settlers in the upper part of Bergen Co. 
N. J., up to 1700, taken from the Church membership, and the Marriage 
Record, of the Hackensack congregation. This church organization at 
this time occupied the held between Bergen and Tappan, in an area of 
about ten miles around Hackensack (these three congregations I believe 
being the only ones existing at that period in the vicinity of New Amster- 
dam (New York) on the Jersey side). 

The names marked * are still numerous in Hackensack and its imme- 
diate vicinity.

Genealogical History of the town of Reading, Mass., including the present 
Towns of Wakefield, Reading and North Reading, with Chronological and 
Historical Sketches, from 1639 to 1874. By Hon. Lilley Eaton. pp. xwiii. 
and 815. Boston : Alfred Mudge& Son, Printers, 34 School street, 1S74. 

In this comprehensive volume, which records the annals of Reading during a period of 
nearly two and a half centuries, we find a most valuable contribution to American local 
history and genealogy. Students who have traced their lines of ancestry back to Lynn, 
1603—1700, will doubtless find additional light from this story of " Redding", or Lynn 
Village. That the heart of the author has been in his work is abundantly evident in the 
faithful care exhibited in the transcripts from the early records of the town and Colony. 
All the usual details of laws, customs, religion and habits, are given and impressed upon 
the reader in the quaint language of the original record. The settlers themselves, in 
alphabetical order, are genealogically considered, the usual technical exponents of genera- 
tions being omitted, the design evidently being that the work should contain nothing 
incomprehensible or mystical to those not initiated in such lore ; and for a work of this kind 
we think he was right. Every department of the work shows the most familiar knowledge 
of facts only to be obtained by the untiring labors of a life finding pleasure and instruction 
in such, employment. Several steel engravings an:] a variety of wood cuts embellish the 
work, fifty illustrations in ail. The typography is excellent, no notes in small type being 
found. The Appendix, also in large type, comprises a selection of some twenty papers, 
deeds, 11? ts of persons, etc., of special or general interest. 

perhaps the most serious fault which will be found with the work, is its want of an 
alphabetical index of names. Very full tables of contents are given, but we question 
whether any particular subject would be foand any more readily than by glancing over the 
text itself. While few changes would probably have been made in the matter and arrange- 
ment, we think that the author was too thorough a scholar ever to have allowed the book 
to go out thus incomplete. The work was carried through the press subsequently to the 
author's death, by a committee of the town of Wakefield, $2,500 being appiopria ted for 
the purpose. An obituary of the author will be found in the RECORD for April, 1S72, p. 
104. Taken as a whole the book is one showing a great deal of careful and intelligent 
labor, worthy a place in libraries, and one of which the natives of the town may weil be 
proud. J. SI. B. 

The Descendants of Thomas Olcott, One of the First Settlers of Hart- 
ford, Conn. By Nathaniel Goodwin, Descendant of Ozias Goodwin, One 
of said Settlers. Revised Edition, with an Explanatory Preface and 
Important Additions. By Henry S. Olcott. [Motto.] Albany, X. V., J. 
Munsell, State St., 1S74. Svo, pp. xxxi, 124. 

To the full and admirably arranged history of the family of Thomas Olcott, who first 
settled at Hartford, Ct., by Nathaniel Goodwin, published in 1S45, 8vo, pp. 64, we fin : 
added in this volume numerous facts of interest concerning him and his descendants. In 
many cases the descendants are traced in the female line, including some of the first of 
our New York families, both in the City and State. The plan of arrangement is easily 
understood, being the same as that adopted by Mr. Goodwin in the first edition, and 
familiar in all the other works of that thoroughly excellent and judicious writer of family 
history. In the preface to this revised edition we are informed that the descendants of 
Thomas Olcott are indebted to the liberality of Thomas W. Olcott, an eminent banker 
of Albany, N. Y M for the present edition of the work, who, 4 ' indoing this kindness to his 
kinsmen, has erected to his own memory a monument more enduring than any that may 
hereafter be reared over his dust by the hands of affection." The editor, Henry S. Olcott. 
E>q., of this city, has been perfect and diligent in lus labor of love, and deserves great 
commendation for this valuable contribution to the literature of American Genealogy. 

j a 2 Notes on Books. [J 11 ^ 

Memoir of the Life of Josiah Ofincy — Junior, of Massachusetts Bay, 1744-1775. 
By his son, JosiAH Quixcy. Third Edition edited by Eliza Susan QuiXCY. B ysr 

ton : Little, Brown and Company — 1S75. Octavo, pp. 431. 

When the first edition of this work was published in 1S25, by the late venerable Presi- 
dent of Harvard University, it met with great success. Daniel Webster i? said to have 
pronounced it at that time, " the most interesting book he ever reacU" It itdS the most 
interesting volume that had then appeared regarding any of the early and high principled 
actors in the private scenes of the American Revolution. 

The subject of the memoir was an honest higbminded man, who acted from principle, 
and not one of those who became strenuous advocates of the American caa-e, for the rea- 
son that they had everything to gain and nothing to lose by resisting the arbitrary acts of 
the British Government. And the view given by his distinguished son of the men, measures 
and events of that day is invaluable, and in strong contrast to the. views of the same 
period given by some other and later Boston writers, 

American scholars are under the greatest obligations to the editor of this edition, for 
giving it to the world with the addition of important notes and authentic letters, and a good 
index. Her good judgment lias been shown in these matters, and the mechanical execu- 
tion of the volume leaves nothing to be desired. e. f. De L. 

The Bulkeley Family 5 or the Descendants of Rev. Peter Bulkeley, who settled 
at Concord, Mass., in 1636. — Compiled, at the request of Joseph E. Bulkeley, by 
Rev. F. W. Chapman. Hartford : The Case, Lockwood & Brainard Co., Printers. 
1875. 8vo, pp. 2S9. 
The compilation and publication of this work are due to the liberality of Mr. Joseph E. 
Bulkeley of this City, who amid the active duties of a merchant's life, ye: found leisure 
to gather, both in England and in this Country, the valuable records and historical mate- 
rials which form the ground work of the present volume. Mr. Chapman is well known 
as the author of the " Chapman," " Pratt." " Trowbridge," " Buckingham." and 
"Coit," families. In adding this to the list, he has made a valuable contribution to our 
Genealogical Literature. We are pained to learn that before the full completion of the 
work, he was disabled by paralysis from revising it and correcting errors, and supplying 
omissions. This circumstance disarms criticism. A limited number of copies only have 
been published, and may be obtained of Mr. Henry A. Chapman, 12 Canton street, Hart- 
ford, Conn. Price $5, or $5 24 by mail. j. j. L. 

The Jaunclys of New York. — New York, 1S76. 8vo. pp. 24. 

John and James Jauncey. brothers, and natives of Bermuda, came to New York as Mas- 
ters of Merchant Vessels John in 1737, and James in 1743. They were descendants of 
James Jauncey of England, who married Angeliquc Du Bois, a French Protestant, and 
settled in Bermuda. This little volume contains a full account of the descendants of both 
brothers, with many interesting particulars in reference to the collateral brandies jf the 
family. The children of James Jauncey the loyalist, all died without is-ae. William, his 
eldest son, who died in New York in 1S2S, gave a large estate to William Jauncey and 
James Jauncey Thorn, sons of Col. Herman Thorn, with the request t'nt they should 
assume the name of Jauncey. An account of these Thorn Jaitnceys is also given in the 
volume. A copy of the book plate of William, son of James Jauncey, adorns the title 
page, and a well executed portrait of John Jauncey, who came to New York in 1737, 1^ 
inserted. The volume is privately printed, and its author, Joseph O. Brown, Esq. has 
made, in its preparation, another valuable addition to our New York genealogies. 

The Bermuda Branch of the Jauncey Family. [N.p. X.d.] 8vo, pp. 6. 

This volume preceded the publication of The JAUNCEYS of New Y< ::k, and is pri- 
vately printed by the same author, Joseph O. Brown, Psq. It gives an account of the 
descendants of James Jauncey, (and his wife Frances), who died at Somerset, 1 
in 1755. Fie is said to have been the son of James Jauncey and Angeii • i I .. . 
reputed common ancestors of the American Jatmceys, John, the son of James and 
Frances Jauncey, married March 5, 1741, Gershoma Hinson, of Bermu la, where all their 
children were born. Many of the descendants of the latter are residents of the Cky of 
New York, which enhances the importance and value of the work to our local gei 
gists. F.

' Burr. Joseph Burr, residing at Newtown, L. I. in 1692, removed, and purchased a 
Farm in Trenton Township, N. J., which he conveyed to his son John Burr, prior to 
1700. Can any correspondent furnish any information respecting his descendants ? 
Pemeektox. X. J. F. w. e. 

Budd — Collins. — In the notice of Stacy Budd Collins, vol. iv., p. 201, of the Record, 
it might have been stated that hjs father, Isaac Collins, married Rachel Budd, who was the 
daughter of Thomas Budd and Rebecca Atkinson, of Burlington Co., X. J. They were 
married in Philadelphia. Sth of 5th Mo., 1771, and moved to Burlington, where their first 
five children were bom. Then removed to Trenton, where the rest were born, fourteen 
in all, as stated in the notice. 

Thomas Budd, the father cf Rachel, lived in Mount Holly, Northampton Township, 
Burlington, where his will is dated, July 7th, 1751. He died 1757, and in his will says 
he is a a>opfr i and left four children : Stacy Budd, M.D., who married Sarah, daughter 
of John Morrow ; Joseph, Elizabeth and Rachel. Thomas Budd, her father, was the 
second son of Thomas Budd, the 2d, and son of William Budd, No. 1. f. w. e. 

Budd. Record ; Vol. III. p., 92 Oct. 11, 1695, Joseph Budd married Sarah Under- 
bill. Was this Joseph Budd, brother to Thomas, William, James, and John, Budd, 
who settled in Burlington, N. J. about 1676 — 8. ? Where are his descendants? F. w. e. 

Correction". — On page 9, vol. vi., of the Record an error occurs respecting Cath- 
erine Van der Veen, the wife of Jonathan Provoost. She was not the daughter of Pietcr 
Cornelisen Van der Veen and Elsje Tymens, and the words, beginning on the 9th line 
from the top of the page, "and dau. of Pieter Cornelisen Van der Veen and Elsje 
Tymens; she bap. June 29, 1659; her mother became a widow and April 11, 1663, 
m. Capt. Jacob Leisler," should be stricken out. E. R. v. 

' Noble Family. — Announcement. In the Record for April, 1S75. Vol. vi. p., 67, 
the author of the Notes on the Dewey Family, in stating that tha Hon. Lucius M. Bolt- 
wood of Hartford, Ct had prepared a full History of the Noble Family for publication, 
referred to the author as then deceased. We are gratified to be able to correct tills error, 
and to announce, by authority of Mr. Boltwood himself, who haply "still lives" in the 
best of health, that he proposes to publish the Genealogy of the family referred to, as 
soon as subscriptions sufficient to pay the cost of printing shall be secured. Ic will make 
a handsome volume of from 400 to 500 pages octavo, and will embrace the names of more 
than 5000 descendants of Thomas NOBLE, an early settler of Springfield and Westheid, 
Mass., with full notes, and records of all other families of the name in the United States, 
which the compiler has been able to obtain. The price of the book sent by mail, postage 
paid, will be §5,00. Statistical information respecting the family, and subscriptions for 
the work should be forwarded without delay to Hon. L. M. Boltwood, 75 Sigoumey St. 
Hartford, Conn. 

Van Beurex. — The following from the Hackensack and Schraalenberg (N. J.) Church 
records, partly answers the cjuerie on pa^e 46, volume vii. of the Record. It covers, so 
far as these records are concerned, the account of the family in that part of Bergen Coun- 
ty, prior to iSco.

Tillou. — Francis Tillou. a member of the New York Genealogical and Biographical 
Society died at his residence in the City o; New York en the iSth day of April last. He 
was the third child of William C. and Elizabeth (Buckland) Tillou. and nephew of the late 
Francis R. Tillou, Esq., Recorder of New York, and was born in this City, February 10th, 
1S17. His immigrant ancestor in this country, was Pierre Tillou, of the band of perse- 
cuted but resolute Huguenots, who fled from France in 1681, and finally settled at New 
Rochelle, Westchester County. Mr. Tillou was educated to the profession of the Law. 
and was admitted to the bar of this State in 1S3S. He was thoroughly and practically 
conversant with the law of Real Estate, to which branch his business. was mostly confined. 
Strictly conscientious, upright and honorable in all his business transaction- during a pe- 
riod of over thirty-five years in this city, he won the confidence and respect of his clients, 
as well as of all with whom he came in contact. He married Emily, daughter of John 
Davy, of Newburgh, Orange County, and leaves a family of four children. L. 

Van Schaick. — Hon. Stephen Dunnell \'an Schaick, Surrogate of the County of 
New York, died on the 5th day of April last, in Savannah, Georgia, whither he had gone 
for the renovation of his health, which had become seriously impaired, in consequence of 
his too close application and confinement in the discharge of the arduous duties and labors 
of his office. He was the third child of Stephen and Harriet (Dunnell) Van Schaick, 
and was born in this City, February 7th, 1S22. We have been shown a pedigree of the 
family, compiled by him a {q\y years prior to his death, in his own hand writing, and with 
much care and exactness, deducing Ids descent from Dominicus Van Schaick, of Kinder- 
hook who was probably of the same family with. Cape. Gposen Gerritse Van Schaick, a« 
early immigrant from Holland, who settled in Albany in 1649. 

During Mr. Van Scliaick's infancy, his parents remove I to Albany. He received the 
rudiments of his education at the Albany Academy, and in his eighteenth year, entere 1 
the law office of Marcus T. C. Reynolds, Esq., of that City, then one of the most dis- 
tinguished and prominent lawyers in the State. To his careful training in that ( fnce and 
his own industrious and studious application, may be ascribed those traits of character 
and familiarity with the intricacies of the law that prove! of so much service to him in 
the Surrogated office and Court. Shortly after his admission to the bar. he formed a part- 
nership with Mr. Reynolds, under the name of Reynolds, Van Schaick SuCHcott, wJ 
continued until 1S50, when he removed to this city, entering into a new co-partnership 
with a son of the late Chief Justice Greene C. Bronson, under the firm name of Van Schaick 
& Bronson. On the election of the Hon. Robert C. Hutchkigs as Surrogate of New 
York, in 1S70, he was appointed to the responsible position of Chief Clerk, which he 
continued to till with untiring faithfulness and marked ability,. until his own ^ 
the bench of the Surrogate's Court in 1S75. The duties o: this office be ILdiar^ed for a 
period of three months from January 1st, 1S76. 

Mr. Van Schaick married, May 22d, 1844. Luanda, daughter of Dr. Nathaniel Wi'dson. 
of Stockbridge, Mass.. He leaves three children, two sous and a daughter. j. j. i„

Vol. VII. NEW YORK, OCTOBER, 1876. No. 


By Edwin R. Purple. 


i. Jacob Leisler 1 (Loyseler, Leysler, Leydsler, Leydser, Lysler), from 
Frankfort, came to New Netherland a soldier in the West India Company's 
service in 1660. He embarked in the ship Otter from Amsterdam, the 
27th of April of that year. There was a tradition among his descendants 
that he came originally from France, and a vague report, a hundred years 
or so ago in New York, that he was a Swiss. 1 It is more likely that he was 
born in Frankfort, and was, therefore, a native of Germany. A Susanna 
Leydser was one of the sponsors at the baptism, Feb. io, 1664, of Susanna, 
his eldest daughter. The conjecture is a fair one that she was his mother. 
He joined the Dutch Church in New Amsterdam Oct. 2, 1661, and married, 
April n, 1663, Elsje Tymens, widow of Pieter (Cornelisen) Van der Veen, 
who was, in his day, a reputable and wealthy merchant of this city. He prob- 
ably succeeded to the business left by Van der Veen, as a few years after his 
marriage we find him engaged in mercantile pursuits, through which, and 
by his marriage, he acquired a large estate, and was ranked among the 
wealthiest citizens of his time. In 1678, while on a voyage to Europe, he 
was taken prisoner by the Turks, to whom he paid a large ransom for his 
freedom. On the 10th of Sept., 1684, he was commissioned Captain of 
a Militia Company in New York. He purchased for the Huguenots, 
Sept. 20, 1689, of John Pell and Rachel his wife, six thousand acres of 
land within the manor of Pelham, now the township of New Rochelle, in 
Westchester Co., New York. 3 

Early in 1689 news reached New York of the overthrow of James the 
Second, and the accession of William, Prince of Orange, to the English 
throne. The people having determined to seize Fort James, in the 
interest of King William and Queen Mary, they selected Capt. Jacob

Leisler to carry their design into effect. On the 3d of June, 1689, the day 
following its seizure, Lieut.-Governor Nicholson left New York for 
England. The same day Leisler issued a proclamation declaring that his 
intention in holding the fort was to preserve the Protestant religion, and 
that he should hold it only until the arrival of a Governor with orders from 
his Royal Highness, the Prince of Orange, then daily expected, into 
whose hands it would be immediately delivered up. But this expectation, 
unfortunately for him, and the peace of the Province, was not realized un- 
til the arrival of Gov. Sloughter, in March, 1691. In the meantime, Leisler, 
on the 1 6th of August, 1689, was commissioned Commander-in-Chief, by 
a Committee of Safety, who represented a majority of the community. 

In Dec, 1689, a messenger arrived in New York, bearing a letter from 
the English Government, addressed "To Francis Nicholson, Esq., or in 
his absence, to such as for the time being, takes care for preserving the 
peace and administering the laws in His Majesties province of New York."' 
This letter gave authority to the person addressed to take chief command 
as Lieutenant-Governor of the Province, and to appoint a Council to assist 
him in conducting the government. By the advice of the Committee of 
Safety, Leisler, on the nth Dec, I6S9, assumed the style of Lieutenant- 
Governor, and selected as his Council, Pieter De La Nov, Samuel Staats, 
Hendrick Jansen (Van Feurden), Johannes Vermelje, for the city and 
county of New York ; Capt. Gerardus Beeckman, for Kings County ; 
Samuel Edsall, for Queens County ; Capt. Thomas Williams, for West- 
chester County ; and William Lawrence, for the County of Orange. They 
appointed Jacob Milborne Secretary of the Province and Clerk to the 
Lieutenant-Governor and Council. On the 28th Jan., 1691, Capt. Richard 
Ingoldsby arrived in New York, bearing their Majesties' Commission as 
Captain of Foot, and, without producing any legal authority, he demanded 
of Leisler the possession of the fort, which was refused. Henry Sloughter, 
who had been appointed Governor in Chief of the Province, arrived on 
the 19th of March following, late in the day, and Leisler, "having notice 
thereof, that same night (though very late) took care to deliver the fort to 
his order, which was done very early the next morning.'' Sloughter im- 
mediately ordered the arrest of Leisler, and his friends with him. and 
called a special Court of Oyer and Terminer, which was held for their 
trial in April following. By this court, composed of some of his most 
virulent enemies, and which from the first, had prejudged him and his as- 
sociates, 1 Leisler, and Jacob Milborne, his son-in-law, were convicted 
and attainted of high treason, for not delivering the possession of the fort 
to Capt. Richard Ingoldsby, and sentenced to death. They were executed 
together near the site of the' present Hall of Records, 2 on Saturday, May 16, 
1 691, while the populace was overawed by military force, and their 
enemies "were carousing in beastly triumph and drunkenness." After 
execution ( by hanging), they were beheaded and their bodies buried in 
ground belonging to Leisler, east of the Commons, and near the corner 
of a street called George street, supposed to be in the rear of the present 
"Tribune Building," between Spruce and Frankfort streets. They were 
reburied, with great solemnity by a large concourse of citizens, in the Old 
Dutch Church, in Garden street, now Exchange Place, Oct. 20. 1698. 

1 Gerardus Beekman, Johannes Vermelje, Thomas Williams. Meyndert Coerten, Abraham Btmshcr, and 
Abraham Gouverneur were convicted, with I.eisler and Milborne, of high treason.

The British Parliament, in 1695, passed an act reversing their attainder, 
and restoring their estates to their families, thus virtually censuring the 
illegality of their execution. (Dunlap's History of New York, Vol. 1 / 
Documentary History of New York, Vol. 2 ; The Administration of 
Jacob Zeisler, by Charles F. Hoffman, in Sparks' American Biography, 
Vol. 13/ Collections of the N. Y. Historical Society, for' 1868 ; Valen- 
tine's History of New York.) 

Elsje Tymens, the widow of Jacob Leisler, survived him some 13 or 14 
years. She was living Sept. 17, 1704, at which date she was a sponsor at 
the baptism of Elizabeth, dau. of Barent Reinders. Issue. 

2. i, Susannah 2 , bap. Feb. 10, 1664 ; joined the Dutch Church in New 
York, Dec. 3, 1681, and removed with certificate some time after to Ber- 
gen ( N. J.?). The date and place of her first marriage is not known. She 
m. 1 st, Michiel Vaughton (called the Dutch Church Baptismal 
records), an Englishman and a protege of Gov. Thomas Dongan, with 
whom he came to New York in August, 1683. He was a half-brother of 
John Spragg, Esq., who was a member of the Legislative Council in 1683, 
and subsequently Secretary of the Province of New York. 

Governor Dongan describes Vaughton as having been " a volunteer two 
or three years on board ship with Captain Temple," etc., and "a pretty 
ingenious young man," who, happening to be in London when he came away, 
offered his services, which the Governor accepted and promised to aid him 
with money when in need of it " for to put him into some way." On 
the nth of May, 1684, he was commissioned Clerk of the Market of New 
York, and in December following we find him Commander of the Sloop 
James, and authorized by warrant to proceed to the Sound and seize and 
send to the city all vessels that may seem to be engaged in unlawful traffic. 
Edward Antill was part owner of the vessel he commanded, Vaughton's 
share in it having been purchased with money loaned him by Gov. Dongan. 
In the spring of 1685, Hugh Riddle, a Scotchman and "poor Gentleman," 
coming into the Province from New Jersey, brought with him, without 
entry at the Custom House, a small parcel of linen cf the value of three 
to five pounds. Some time after, Riddle and one of the Custom officers 
" drinking drunk together," fell to quarrelling, on which the officer went out, 
about one or two in the morning, and, meeting Vau°;hton, also a Custom 
House officer, compelled him to go with him to seize uncustomed goods, at 
Riddle's lodgings. Arrived there, they broke open the door, and Riddle, 
" still drunk," in endeavoring to keep them out, stabbed Vaughton, wound- 
ing him severely. For this offence he was thrown into prison, where he 
remained a long time awaiting Vaughton's recovery. Being in a starving 
condition, he was finally liberated upon the application of Mr. Vaughton, 
Mr. Spragg, and others, the Council ordering his goods to be released upon 
his paying the physicians their charges for attending Vaughton. These 
being more than the value of the goods, and Riddle a poor man, Mr. Spragg, 
in charity to him, paid the surgeons their demand, amounting to ten 
pounds. 1 

On the 24th of January, 1702, Susanna Vaughton, his widow, petitioned 
for a, patent of 300 acres of land, lying in the vicinity of the Crom Elboogh 
(Crum Elbow Creek), in Dutchess County, "which she alleges to be part 
of a purchase made by Henry Pawling (Sheriff of Esopus in 1684), under

The last notice of Michiel Vaughton where his identity is certain is 
found in the record of the baptism of his son Michiel, September 9, 1688.

return he resided in the South Ward of New York, where he was living

5. iv. Mary, 2 bap. Dec. 12, 1669; joined the Dutch Church in New

(m. I. dated Feb. 3 of that year), she married Jacob Milborne (Milburne, 
Melborn), the active Secretary of her father, and one of the leading spirits 
of his administration. He was born in England about 1648. and was a 
brother of Rev. William Milborne, who settled as minister of the church at 
Saco, Maine, in May, 16S5, and prob. died at Boston, August, 1699/ 

It is alleged that he was convicted of clipping the Kings coin, and sold 
as a servant in the Barbadoes, and afterwards bought by a Hartford man. 2 
If this story be true, he must have been a mere child at the time of the com- 
mission of the offence for which he was transported to Barbadoes. He was 
living in Hartford in 1663. 3 came to New York in 166S, being then twenty 
years old, and was employed by Thomas Delavall, a leading merchant, 
as clerk and bookkeeper, in whose service he remained until 1672. In 
October of that year he was admitted to plead with John Sharp and Samuel 
Edsal, Attorneys for the Plaintiff, in the trial of a suit in the Court of

Assizes, at New York, on appeal from the Court on the Delaware, brought 
by Armigart Pappegoya (dau. of the Swedish Governor Printz) against 
Andrew Carr, for the recovery of Tinnicum Island. 1 He soon afcer engaged 
in trade as a merchant in New York, his commercial enterprises causing 
his frequent absence from the province. Returning from England on the 
25th of August, 16S9, he was appointed in December following Secretary 
of the Province and Clerk to Lieut.-Gov. Leisler, with whom his subsequent 
history and sad fate is identified. 

It is probable that Mary Leisler 2 was the second wife of Jacob Mil- 
borne. In the list of members of the Dutch Church in New York, under 
date Nov. 29, 1688, appears the name of Johanna Edsal, h. v. 2 Jacob 
Melborn. Opposite her name, Obyt is written, but the date of her decease 
is not given. She was probably the dau. of Samuel Edsal and Jenneke 
Wessels, and bap. in Bergen, N. J., Sept. 4, 1667. 

In the second preamble of the Act of Parliament in 1695, reversing the 
attainder oi Jacob Leisler and others, the following is recited: '-And 
whereas the said Jacob Leisler, also Jacob Milborne, Abraham Gouverneur, 
and several others, were arraigned in the Supreme Court of Judicature at 
New York aforesaid, and convicted and attainted of high treason and 
felony, for not delivering the possession of the said fort to the said Richard 
Ingoldsby. and the said Jacob Leisler and Jacob Milborne were executed 
for the same. May it therefore please your most excellent Majesty at the 
humble petition and request of Jacob Leisler, the son and heir of the said 
Jacob Leisler, deceased, Jacob Milborne, the son and heir of the said 
Jacob Milborne, deceased, and of the said Abraham Gouverneur, that it be 
declared and enacted," etc. 3 

The above is the only statement we have found, that Jacob Milborne 
left issue surviving him. This son (if the name is not an accidental in- 
terpolation in the above bill) was probably the fruit of Milborne's hrst mar- 
riage with Johanna Edsal, who, being in England at the time of his father's 
tragic death, afterwards remained there.

IC2 The Motif o art Family. [Oct., 

By Teunis G. Bergen, Esq., of Bay Ridge, L. I. 

The writer in his researches has gathered, from such sources as have 
come within his reach, much genealogical information in relation to the 
early settlers of the west end of Long Island, of which little has appeared 
in type, and which, if printed in the Genealogical Record, will be pre- 
served and may be useful to the future genealogical student. This sketch, 
with others which he may hereafter furnish ( if desired), is a mere im- 
perfect skeleton, and may with propriety be styled a fragment. 

Pieter and Jan Monfoort, probably brothers, emigrated from Hol- 
land to the New Netherlands, at an early period and undiscovered date. 
The first reference to Pieter on .the colonial records is on the 15th of Dec, 
1639, when he appears to have entered into contract with Pieter Causer 
Alburtus, an Italian, to make a plantation and build a house. This was 
probably at the Wallabout,' and prior to the date of the patents obtained 
by both of the contracting parties in that locality, in advance of which, 
plantations appear to have been selected, improved and occupied. 

May 29, 1641, Pieter Monfoort obtained a patent for land at the Wall- 
about, between the plantations of Jan Monfoort and Pieter Ceser 
Alberto, "in breadth 300 paces, with the same breadth straight into the 
woods." On the 17th of Aug., 1643, Pieter Monfoort obtained another 
patent for the same premises, in which they are more particularly described 
as " apiece of land for a Tobacco plantation, lying on Long Island in the 
bend of Meyrechkawick, bounded by Jan Monfoort on the east, and 
Pieter Italiaen on the west, extending along the marsh into the woods 70 
rods, and 220 rods along the land of Jan Monfoort, to the woods 70 rods, 
again to the marsh in a northerly course 227 rods along the land of Pieter 
Italiaen, amounting to 25 morgen and 8 rods." May 1, 1647, in addition 
to the above land, was granted 406 rods, provided it did not interfere with 
other grants. 

May 29, 1641, a patent was granted to Jan Monfoort, for land on Long 
Island next to Rinnegakonc and adjoining the premises of Pinter Monfoort, 
for which he also obtained, in 1643, another patent, in which the premises 
are more particularly described, and said to contain 28 morgen ; and May 
1, 1647, a patent was granted for an additional 190 rods, 

Pieter Monfoort's plantation, in 1701. was in the possession of the widow 
of Martin Ryerse, and that of Pieter Creser Alberto { the ancestor of the 
Alburtus family) in Jan Damen. April 27, 1701, Pieter Monfoort and 
Maria his wife, John Monfoort and Ida his wife, \Vm, Cowenhoven and 
Jonica his wife, and Claes Pieterse WvckofT. as heirs at law, for ^-7 150, 
conveyed Jan Monfoort's patent at the VValiabout, to Garret Cowenhoven, 
per deed, the original of which is in the hands of H. C. Murphy, Jr. 

In addition to lands on Long Island, Jan Monfoort obtained. Mar. 16, 
1647, a patent for a lot on Manhattan Island, on the north-east side of the 
Graft ; and Pieter Monfoort obtained on the same date a patent for a lot 
on said Island on the north-east side of the Graft, June 28, 1654, they 
both obtained patents for lots on the Sheeps pasture on said I si; 

Jan Monfoort married Geertje Pieterse (suppose) Luvster. and in 1677 
he and his wife were members of .the Reformed Dutch Church of Brook-

elate, as hereinbefore stated, being sold by the children of his brother

"1766, Apr. 2. Samuel Bard to Mary Falleau." Perhaps this should be Mary Yalleau. 
Perhaps a dau. m. Rev. John McYickar. See Record, Vol. iv., p. 107. From Miss 
Montgomery's Reminiscences of Wilmington, Del., 2d ed., p. 275 to 30S, we find that 
Mary Magdalen Yalleau (there improperly spelled Yallois) was adopted by her father's 
sister, on the sudden death of her mother, this sister being married to Dr. Bard, an emi- 
nent physician in New York, and was educated by her with care. About 1777 the young 
lady went to visit a sister of her father, then married and residing 111 Philadelphia, where she 
met and finally married, fit Burlington, N. J., Dr. Daniel Bancroft, a loyalist, and 
brother to the noted Dr. Edward Bancroft. Dr. Bard meantime was a devo:ed patriot,

was appointed Commercial Agent of the U. S. for New Orleans and Havana in 1777 
and furnished the supplies for the army under Gen. Roger Clark, for the Illinois Country, 
at his own expense and by his own patriotism.* Was in the British service before the 
Revolution. Owned and li/ed at Silver Springs, near Philadelphia. Had two sons — 
one named Procogia, lived in Philadelphia — and two daughters — one name.: Mary S., 
born in New Orleans, La., married Dr. Samuel Robinson, who studied medicine under

Editors of the New York Genealogical and Biographical Record: 

The following is a copy of a paper of Colonel Robert Magaw. of the Fifth Pennsylvania 
Regiment, and commander of Fort Washington, at the time of its capture by General 
Howe, in. the war of the Revolution, which, with others of historical value, was found 
among the effects of the late Judge James Hamilton, of Carlisle, Pennsylvania, and was 
rescued by the Rev. Dr. Joseph A. Murray, of said locality, from the maw •;•: the paper- 
mill. Colonel Magaw, whose residence was at Carli>le, was held nearly four years as a 
prisoner of war before being exchanged, most of which period he passed n parole in 
Kings County, on Long Island, where he married Marritis, daughter oi Colonel Rutgert 
Van Brunt, of Gravesend. Supposing that it would be interesting to the readers of the

The Valentines in America. 1644-1874. By T. \V. Valentine. New York : 
Clark & Maynard. 1S74. 8vo, pp. 248. 

This volume is mainly devoted to sketches, genealogical and biographical, of the 
descendants of Richard Valentine, of Hempstead, L. I., 1644, John Valentine, Freeman, 
of Boston, 1675, and Benjamin Valentine, who settled in East Chester, Westchester 
County, N. Y., about 1679-80. It is believed that nearly all the Valentines in America 
are descended from these three. They were not brothers, nor even near relatives. 
The work does not profess to give in complete detail the genealogy of any branch. In 
the case of one or two families — descendants of Richard — this has been attempted with 
partial success, and fully accomplished with the descendants of Thomas Valentine, of 
Hopkinton, Mass., son of John, of Boston. 

It has been the author's intention to give such facts in relation to the family as were 
accessible to him, particularly those referring to the first settlers. He has omitted, how- 
ever, any mention of Jan Tymensen Valentine, of Albany, as early as 1675, and of Tymen 
(Timothy) Valentine, probably his son, who removed from Albany to Hackensack, N. J., 
where he married first, July 24, 1699, Gerritie Cornelise, and second, March 22, 1701,

Interspersed in the volume are extracts from the records of various churches on Long 
Island, giving the marriages, baptisms, and deaths in the family, with inscriptions from 
tombstones in the Epi-copal church-yard in East Chester, and a list of the Valentines 
whose names are given in the New York and Brooklyn Directories. One chapter is de- 
voted to the history of the Valentines of Lancashire, England, from whom the New Eng- 
land family, and possibly the Long Island branch, have descended. The work will be found 
not only instructive to those who bear the name, but interesting to the general reader. It 
contains twenty-seven illustrations, mostly portraits, among which is that of the Hon. David 
T. Valentine, for thirty-seven years Clerk of the Common Council, and for whose Manual 
of the Corporation every New York genealogist, and lover of antiquarian lore, owes a 
debt of deep gratitude. P. 

A Genealogy of the Descendants of Peter Vilas. Compiled and Edited 
BY (467) C. H. Vilas. [Motto.] Madison, Wis. Published by the Editor. 1S75. 
8vo, pp. 221. 
Of the history of Peter Vilas, the first known ancestor of the Vilas family in this country, 
but little is known beyond the fact that he was the son of Noah, born in England in 1704, 
came to America, and by wife Mercy Gay (daughter of John Gay and his wife Mary) had 
a son Noah, born in 1733, who became a resident in early life of Alstead, Cheshire 
County, New Hampshire, where it is supposed he died September . 17, 1799. This vol- 
ume gives a full account of the descendants of this second Noah Vilas a nd h is wife Abi- 
gail Baker, both in the male and female line, the latter feature of the work being un-~ 
Usually extended, and embracing the alliances of the Vilas with the Ball, Board, Brown, 
Bullock, Chandler, Chapin, Clay, Cobleigh, Cronkhite. Crosby, Drury, Lay, Green, Hart- 
ford, Hatch, Matheson, Merrill, Morse, Parker, Piatt, Scripture, Smith, Thompson, 
Tilton, Tinker, Twyman, and numerous other families. It is elegantly printed on tinted 
paper, and illustrated with four fine steei portraits of prominent members oi the family. 
The arrangement, however, is so imperfect (of which the editor seems to have been aware, 
but time did not permit him to re-write it), as to render it almost useless as a work of 
reference, and in this respect is not a step in advance of the genealogies of forty-years ago.

We have received the April and July numbers for the current year, of this new and 
interesting magazine, tiie prospectus of which is printed on the cover o\ this number of 
the Record. From a somewhat careful examination of the numbers before us, we can 
commend the work as deserving the favor of American students of family history, as well 
as that of our British brethren.

••The Marriage, Baptismal, and Burial Registers of the Collegiate Church 
or Abbey of St. Peter, Westminster. Edited and Annotated by Joseph 
Lemuel Chester." Private edition. London, 1876. Large 8vo, pp. 631. 
Also, 10th vol. of series issued by the Harlein Society. 

This volume, "designed for reference rather than popular perusal," contains as its 
tc\t the Registers of Westminster Abbey, from 1606 to 1875. with most elaborate notes, 
identifying all the persons, so far as possible, and giving "any salient facts concerning 
them, and references by which their history, or that of their families, couid be pur- 
sued." Many deficiencies have been supplied, and errors in previous works corrected. 
Monuments, wills, records of other churches, colleges, and public offices, and publica- 
tions of all kinds, have been referred to. %i As much care has been taken with the names 
of persons in humble positions as with those of their superiors — but, of course, not 
with so great success." It reaches families in all parts of England, and many in Ireland 
and Scotland, having been "a labor of love," which has occupied the editor many vears. 
He intends " to embody in a supplement such important information as he may acquire 
respecting the persons named in the present volume, and especially concerning the few- 
still unidentified." 

Persons consulting the work, wdthout time or patience to read it, will be greatly aided 
by a most elaborate index, in which, it is believed, "not a solitary name in the text or 
notes will not be found in its appropriate place." Those named in the text are distin- 
guished from the much larger number mentioned in the notes, and under the proper 
Christian as well as family name, in this and throughout, the Abbey cannot produce 
a greater monument of industry, patience, and skill. In every respect the book is a 
pattern to be followed by others for every Church Register that can find an editor and 
a printer capable of such a labor of love and usefulness. 

The rich contribution to general history which it affords, the student as well as the 
genealogist will appreciate. 

The editor, well qualified for such a production, will not fail of appreciation.

Horton Genealogy ; or, Chronicles of the Descendants of Barnabas Hor- 
ton, of Southold, L. I. 1640. Compiled by Geo. F. Horton, M.D. Phila- 
delphia : Published by the Home Circle Publishing Co., 1876. 
This is one of those difficult pioneer works, embracing a very large family, widely 
scattered ; described as mainly what those have made it who furnished records and 
sketches; the whole carefully compiled. "When errors are discovered, notice thereof 
should be given, so that a second edition may be made entirely truthful ; " no sup- 
posed errors then need be published. The work is a valuable one, and we trust the many 
interested will see that the diligent compiler is reimbursed.

The " Maine Genealogical and Biographical Society" was organized in July. 1S75, °y 

a company of gentlemen in Augusta, and this periodical, which we have seen in a private 

library, is published under its auspices. As its name implies, it is chierty devoted to the 

History and Biography of Maine families. We wish it an abundant success, and hope its 

labor of love will meet such ample encouragement as will insure its permanent publication.

8vo, pp. 268-+- 1 unnumbered of Errata. 
This volume is an important contribution to our New York Genealogies. It deserves 
and will, we believe, command the attention, not only of those related to the Cole 
ii >", but of all who are interested in the family histories of the first Dutch Settler.^ of New 
•>etherland. To the latter class — particularly those who may know little or nothing of 
Ine Dutch language — the introductory remarks on Holland Names, by the learned author,

will be found of special sendee. With this a list of such baptismal names as appear in the 
work are given in a table with the corresponding English names, and following are the 
Chronicles of Holland, from 1579 to 1621, of New Amsterdam (now New York city), from 
1609 to 1674, and of the Reformed (Dutch) Church in America, from 1619 to 1700. The 
work is divided into four parts. Part I. contains an account of the first American ances- 
tors, Barent Jacobszen Cool and his wife Marritje Leenderts, and their descendants to 
and including the third generation ; also, on page 32, an account'of the Meyer family, or 
descendants of Jan Dirckszen Meyer, in the line of Annetje Meyer, who married Abra- 
ham facobsen K00L We observe here that Jan Dirckszen Meyer's wife, put down by 
the author as unknown, was Tryntje Grevenraet. See Record, Vol. v., p. 179, Vol. vi., 
p. 152, Vol. vii., p. 29. Their son, Johannes or Jan, was baptized in New Amster- 
dam Feb. 25, 1652. See Rp:cord, Vol. v., p. 98. Part II. contains an account of Isaac 
Cole and Catharine Serven, and their children, fifteen in number, with the genealogy of the 
Serven family in America. Part III. embraces the genealogies of the families of Wood, 
f Shatzel, Blauvelt, Van Ho uten , Forshee, Meyer (continued from Part I.), Palmer, Bogert, 

V .Wyckoif, and Van Devest er. allied with the Cole family in marriage. Part IV. gives 

the descendants of Isaac Cole and Catharine Serven, complete to 1876, with births, mar- 
riages, profession of religion, and deaths, as far as could be procured ; also occupations, 
war records, etc. It also contains a tabular summary of the several generations, a list of 
post-office addresses of the living brought into view in the work, and a complete index of 
all the names to be found in the volume. The work is well printed in clear type, and 
twenty-two portraits of members of the family, printed by the Albert-type process, adds 
to its value and attractiveness. Notwithstanding the great merit of the book, we feel 
constrained to say that the author has been only moderately successful in the arrangement 
of his material, and his system of references is insufficient to enable one to trace readily 
the later connections of the family with their ancestral head. P. 


Graham. — John Lorimer Graham, one of the oldest and most respected members of 
the New York Bar, died at Flushing, L. I., on Saturday, July 22, 1S76. He was the 
son of Dr. John A. Graham by his second wife, Margaret Lorimer, of London, England, 
and was born there March 20, 1797. He became a resident of New York in 1S00 ; 
began the study of law in the office of the late venerable Judge Tapping Reeve, at Litch- 
field, Conn., and finished in the office of the late John Anthon. Esq., in this city. He was 
admitted to the Bar in 1S21. In 1819, he was appointed by Governor De Witt Clinton 
one of his aide-de-camps, with the rank of Colonel. He was early a life director of the 
American Bible Society, and an efficient member of the Council of the University of the 
City of New York, in which he founded a free scholarship. In 1834 he was appointed 
a Regent of the State University, and in 1840 was made Postmaster of New York, from 
which office he retired in 1843, and resumed his practice at the bar. In 1S61 he was 
called to Washington by President Lincoln, and assigned to a confidential position in the 
Treasury Department, where he rendered important service to the Government during 
the war. 

He married Emily, the youngest daughter of Isaac Clason, an old merchant of New 
York, by whom he had nine children, eight of whom lived to maturity, viz. : John Lori- 
mer, Jr., De Witt Clinton, Ambrose Spencer, Augustus Clason, James Varmint, Mal-

Vol. VIII. NEW YORK, JANUARY, 1877. No. 1, 


By Charles B. Moore. 

The life of so remarkable a man — one so long active in various walks 
among us, cannot be permitted to pass beyond notice without recording 
its outlines and some points deserving especial remembrance. 

William Buell Sprague, youngest child of Benjamin Sprague and 
Sybil (Buell) his wife* was born at Andover, Tolland county, Connecticut, 
on the 1 6th day of October, 1795. He early exhibited a very decided 
taste for study, and for its development in speaking and writing. After 
attending the common school of Andover and neighboring towns, and the 
academy at Colchester, he was placed at the age of fourteen under the 
tuition of Rev. Abiel Abbot, of Coventry, for preparation to enter college. 
At an early age he took charge of a district school as teacher, which was 
then a common course for students. He was occupied in study and in 
teaching until the year 181 1, when he entered the Freshman class of Yale 
College. His studies in college were for a time seriously interfered with 
by an affection of the eyes, which compelled his absence : but he recovered, 
rejoined his class, and graduated with honor in 1815. From early child- 
hood he felt and expressed a strong desire to enter the ministry, and he had 
taken his college course in preparation for that profession. It was his 
intention to enter a theological seminary immediately upon receiving his 
college diploma. But during the latter part of his senior year in college, 
he was invited, through the Hon. Timothy Pitkin, and Professor Sillinian, 
of Yale, to go to Virginia and become an instructor in the family of 
Major Lewis, the nephew of Gen'l Washington, whose wife, Eleanor 
(Custis) Lewis, was an adopted daughter of Washington. He accepted the 
invitation, and accordingly in the autumn of 18 15 he set out for Major 
Lewis's home at Woodlawn, which had been a part of Washington's planta- 
tion near Mount Vernon. Here he was cordially received, and he remained 
a private tutor in Major Lewis's family until June, 18 16. This was a 
remarkable change of scene, relieving the seclusion which too often mars 
the eftect of theological studies. From Mrs. Lewis and others he learned 
much of Washington's private and domestic life, which served only to 
increase his veneration for the great man's memory ; and much also of 

2 Biographical Sketch of the U an -' 

many of the heroes of revolutionary fame. He learned, too, to regard the 
members of the family at Woodlawn with sincere affection ; and he became 
accustomed to speak of his sojourn among them as one of the pleasantest 
recollections of his early life. 

In the fall of [816, having returned to the North, he enrolled himself 
among the students of the Princeton Theological Seminary, and entered 
upon his professional studies under the superintendence of Drs. Miller, 
Alexander, and Green. Both at the college and in the seminary he 
came in close contact with a select class of learned and able men, and his 
subsequent life showed that he improved his opportunities and associations. 
He graduated from the seminary, in due course, in 1819.- 

He was immediately thereafter settled in the ministry, over the Congre- 
gational Church in West Springfield, Mass., as a colleague with the Rev. 
Dr. Joseph Lathrop, who was then in the 88th year of his age, and in the 
63d year of his ministry in that parish ; and who died in the following year 
(1820), leaving him sole pastor. 

He remained in charge of that quiet rural parish until theTall of 1829, 
and it afforded him many opportunities for exercise and improvement. He 
commenced writing for publication. 

In the year 1826 he received a unanimous call to become pastor of the 
Cedar Street Church of New York, as successor of the Rev. Dr. Romeyn, 
which he declined. Among his successors at West Springfield have been 
the Rev. Drs. Vermilye and Field, of New York. 

In the year 1828 the degree of Doctor of Divinity was conferred upon 
him by Columbia College. He became known as an author as well as 
preacher. In that year he made his first voyage to Europe, and passed 
about two months in France and England, where he made many friends, 
especially Wilberforce and Hannah More, with both of whom he afterwards- 
had some correspondence. 

In the fall of 1829 he received and accepted an invitation to succeed the 
Rev. Dr. John Chester as pastor of the Second Presbyterian Church at 
Albany. While there he was on terms of communication and close friend- 
ship with his previous select acquaintances, with the professors of Yale 
and Princeton, with many New York pastors and eminent men, and " with 
a wide and numerous circle throughout the country." "Successive gover- 
nors and legislators sat under his ministry." During much of the time it 
was the practice of each branch of the Legislature to invite the Albany pas- 
tors, in turn, to open the daily sessions with prayer. Many members became 
his acquaintances and his welcome guests. 

In 1836 he made a more extended trip through England and Scotland, 
and on the continent of Europe, forming the acquaintance of Neander, 
Humboldt, Southev, Rogers, Campbell, Dr. Chalmers, Miss Maria Edge- 
worth, Dr. Abercrombie, and many others of note. In 184S he received 
the degree of D.D. from Harvard, and in 1S69 the degree of Doctor of 
Laws from Princeton. 

His pastorate in Albany extended over a period of forty years. His hos- 
pitable house became the resort of hundreds, including strangers from 
abroad and persons from all parts of the Union. "His manners were cour- 
teous and engaging," and, with many attractions, it is : * probable he was 
personally known and honored by as wide a circle of friends as any private 
ndividual now living." At the end of that period, and just as he was. coni- 

eting his 74th year, he resigned his charge, and removed with his family 

1877.] &W- William Buell Sprague, D. D., LL.D. 3 

from Albany to Flushing, L. I., where he died on the 7th of May, 1876, 
aged 80 years. 

Funeral services at Flushing were performed on Wednesday afternoon. 
the 10th of May. A condensed, comprehensive, and eloquent review of 
his life was published in the N. Y. Observer of nth May. In the after- 
noon of that day, funeral services were performed in the Second Presbv- 
terian Church at Albany, and a memorial address delivered by the Rev. I Jr. 
Halley, who had enjoyed his friendship for 35 years. This was published 
in the Albany Argus of May 12th- A brief, but spirited sketch, signed 
"Sentinel" (Mr. W. H. Bogart, of Aurora), was published in the N. V. 
World of 22a! May. An appreciative article by an old friend, the Rev. 
Ray Palmer, D.D., appeared in the Boston Congregationalist of 24th May. 
An editorial respecting him was inserted in trie Interior newspaper of Chi- 
cago on 25th May. A sermon on his life, character, and services was 
preached in his old church at Albany, to a crowded audience, by the Rev. 
A. I. Upson, on the 28th May, which was published in the Albany papers 
of 29th. And there are doubtless others, which have not come under view. 
Selections from any of these are deemed admissible. The difficulty is to 
decide where to begin and where to end. Errors on this point are designed 
to be covered by this general reference to them all. 

Three distinct divisions are traced in which he was remarkable : the 
first, the most private and personal, was as a relative, friend, acquaintance, 
and neighbor ; the second, more public and better known, as a celebrated 
and successful preacher and pastor ; and the third, for the world and fqr. 
posterity, as an eminent and voluminous author. And it strikes attention 
as most unusual, that he possessed the happy faculty and habit of harmo- 
niously combining these, without allowing one to trespass upon the other, 
and " without interfering with his highest success in every religious and 
literary duty." 

He was a most laborious and attentive pastor, and his teachings ll prac- 
tical in reference to the duties and relations of life," while * l full of conso- 
lation to the afflicted and the mourner." " With an imposing stature that 
rose to the majestic, with a voice of singular sweetness and modulation. 
and with a manner in which there was nothing to offend the most fastidious 
taste, he was equally fitted for interesting and instructing the simplest and 
most cultivated portions of his audience. So acceptable were his services 
to the American churches that they were largely sought, and he was fre- 
quently invited to plead the causes of missions and benevolent societies in 
New York, Philadelphia, Boston, and other cities." Many of these addresses 
have been published. " No minister in this country was ever called upon 
to preach so frequently on special public occasions." The number of his 
published sermons and addresses was about 175. 

After the extensive publication of the correspondence of Washington, 
by Dr. Sparks, full liberty was given to Dr. Sprague- to select wiiat he 
desired from the correspondence ; and a very large number of interesting 
and valuable letters and documents, including much of the General's revo- 
lutionary correspondence, came into his possession, and now form part of 
the collection of original MSS. left behind him. The collection includes 
parts of the correspondence of President Monroe, of Vice-President Burr, 
and of Samuel Huntington of Conn., besides a large number o: otiier 
MSS., foreign and domestic, ancient and modern. Early in life he 
acquired a taste for autographs ; the gathering of them became a 

a Biographical Sketch of the [Jan., 

pleasure to him, and be continued the practice through life, perhaps with 
increased enjoyment. Competent judges have pronounced his collection 
the finest in the world, save only that contained in the British Museum. 

But the first and second divisions of his character must be passed over 
with this brief summary, and without attempting to do them justice — other 
writers being better qualified — in order to pay more attention to the third, 
his authorship. 

In 1822, while at West Springfield, aged twenty-seven, he published 
"Letters on Practical Subjects to a Daughter," afterwards called "The 
Daughter's Own Book." This was republished in many editions here and 
in Great Britain, and it had many reviews. It was afterwards adopted by 
the American Tract Society, and by the London Tract Society. It was 
republished in England under another title, and again in Boston as an 
English book. His first knowledge of this was through casually taking up 
the book in a Boston book-store. In 1828 there were published "Letters 
from .Europe." In 1830, " Lectures to Young People," of which several 
editions were published, and of which there were several reviews. The 
lectures were republished in England. 

In 1832 he published " Lectures on Revivals," with an introductory 
essay by Dr. L. Woods, etc., of which there were repeated editions and 
many reviews. They were republished in London with other introductions, 
i2mo and 8vo, and a new edition, 8vo, in 1840. 

In 1834 he published " Hints Designed to Regulate the Intercourse of 
Christians." There were several editions, and the work was republished 

In 1837 he published " Lectures Illustrating the Contrast Between True 
Christianity and Various Other Systems." These were republished in Lon- 
don in 1838. At one time he ranked them among his best productions. 
They are still deemed deserving of a wider circulation than they attained. 
The true and solid value of books is too often in the reverse order of 
their popularity. 

In 1838 he published the " Life of the Rev. Edward Dorr Griffin, D.D., 
President of Williams College." 

In 1844, " Letters to Young Men, Founded on the Life of Joseph," 
which were republished at London in 1846, and the eighth American 
edition was published in 1854. 

In 1847, " Aids to Early Religion." 
In 1848, "Words to a Young Man's Conscience." 

In 1855, "Visits to European Celebrities," and "Monitory Letters to 
Church Members." 

In 1864, ''Memoirs of the Rev. John McDowell, D.D., and the Rev. 
Wm. A. McDowell, D.D." In 1874, " The Life of Jedediah Morse, D.D." 
In the years 1865 to 1868 he contributed to the JV. Y. Observer a 
series of articles, eighty-four in number, consisting of biographical sketches 
of "American College Presidents." He acquired a great facility in bio- 
graphical writing, and frequently furnished sketches of men in public life. 
He preserved in manuscript the important dates and facts in the lives of 
noted men, so far as he became acquainted with them. Some have been 
published, but many sketches yet remain among his unpublished papers. 
Perhaps his taste for autographs encourage. 1 this ; for no one of such 
habits of thought could look over evch a gathering as lie possessed with- 
out seeking to discover and collect v'hatever was remarkable and worthy

of remembrance in the lives and conduct of the penmen. In this 
biographical part, so attractive to our society, however prompted, he be- 
came a proficient — a master. The great work of his life, not yet well 
known, was left among the last, called " Annals of the American Pulpit," 
being not only " the most complete history of the churches and ministers in 
this country ever attempted," but one that on a careful perusal will be 
found to contain the greatest gathering of the history of the people of this 
country, in every variety of position, that can be preserved for future 
generations." " It can never be supplanted." He first formed the plan of 
the Annals and commenced his labor upon them in 1847, when 52 years 
of age, and the work became a subject of daily labor with him for at least 
15 years. It contains notices, brief or extended, of all the principal 
clergymen of the United States, with historical introductions, and personal 
histories of unquestioned authenticity, to which many eminent writers have 
contributed, and which have been received with universal favor by all 
classes of men, and all denominations of Protestants. Nine volumes have 
been published, and the tenth, in MSS., is ready for publication. It is so 
arranged and divided that- the different sects, jealous of each other, may 
read only their own history, if they choose. But a library which contains 
only one sect will betray its owner, if of sufficient means, as a narrow- 
minded sectarian. 

In 1857, vols. 1 and 2 were published, embracing "Trinitarian Congre- 
gationalists." In 1S5S, vols. 3 and 4, embracing " Presbyterians." In 
1859, vol. 5, "Episcopalian." In i860, vol. 6, "Baptist/ 1 In 1861, 
vol. 7, " Methodist." In 1865, vol. 8, " Unitarian." In 1869, vol. 9, 
embracing five different sects in different parts, but generally " Lutheran " 
and "Reformed;" and the 10th, unpublished, embraces Quakers or 
Friends, 32 sketches ; German Reformed, 32 ; Moravian, 22 ; Cumber- 
land Presbyterian, 19; Freewill Baptist, 8; Swedenborgian, 8; and 
Universalist, 6. 

At the commencement of the publication in 1S57 there were many and 
favorable reviews of the first two volumes; and in 1858, of the third and 
fourth. The others have been noticed in the publications of the denomi- 
nations to which they related, and in a report by a committee of our society, 
but a good general review of the whole is yet wanting ; and it is believed 
that in mass they are not very widely known. Yet their general character 
is well established. 

. It will be noticed that a large part of the work appears in the form of 
letters signed by the personal acquaintances of the clergymen described, 
and generally of the same sect. A little examination shows that some of 
the letters must have been rewritten by the accomplished author, and have 
been sent back for approval and signature by the letter-writer ; for they 
betray in parts his more finished style, while they preserve the peculiar 
marks also of the signers. Short reflection suffices for the inference that 
this was the safe way for a writer of one sect, or a stranger, to secure the 
details, and to publish a true and creditable sketch of the personal charac- 
teristics and course of another. Errors often seriously impair the recep- 
tion of biographical sketches; and one, almost the only way to check 
these is to submit the MSS., or read them to friends personally near to and 
familiar with the facts. It occasions more labor and delay, and does not 
destroy responsibility. The official editor must determine what shall be 
inserted, and what omitted. But once accomplished, the gain is manifest. 

6 Biographical Sketch of the [Jan., 

Professor Goodrich, so far as he viewed the annals, wrote that, u taken 
as a whole, considering the difficulty of inducing so large a body of men 
even to promise contributions, the necessity of seeing most of them in per- 
son, perhaps repeatedly, to explain more fully the plan or urge on its 
execution, and the delicate task imposed upon the author of reducing those 
contributions to the proper length, and excluding or modifying much of the 
matter offered — considering all these, this work must be regarded as one of 
the most remarkable ever attempted." It contains many personal anec- 
dotes, but they illustrate not merely the characteristics of the individual 
described, but " the times in which he lived." It embraces more than 
1,000 original letters, and sketches the lives of more than 1,300 persons, 
with numerous references to and partial sketches of 500 others. 

Of the importance and usefulness of biographies, no one could be more 
thoroughly convinced, and this crowning and lasting work, of such immense 
labor, is the greatest proof of the fact, as well as of his opinion of it. It is 
written that a he fairly luxuriated in biographical details," and that he felt 
44 the nobility, yes, almost heroism of the duty of rescuing from the grave 
of oblivion the memory. of the lives and services of so many self-sacrificing 
men." " It was for him a labor of love. It was a work precisely suited 
to his nature." 

" In his preface to that most interesting series of sketches entitled 
'Visits to European Celebrities,' he said of himself: * In both my visits 
to Europe I was more interested to see men than things.' " 

" His passion for biography grew with his years. He could hardly write a 
formal discourse without making use of biographical illustrations/' At 
Salem, Mass., "he would not fail to allude to Elias Cornelius and Samuel 
Worcester." At Harvard, in his Phi Beta Kappa oration, " the fact that he 
was of a different school of theology did not prevent his honoring the mem- 
ory of his early friend, while he dwelt upon the endeared and classic name 
of Buckminster." Before the Presbyterian Board of Foreign Missions he 
spoke of " the posthumous influence of foreign missionaries," and before 
the Alumni of Yale College he took for his subject that apparently immense, 
unattractive, dry, and difficult theme, " The Triennial Catalogue of the 
College," and that address is called " a great casket of the jewels of his 
Alma Mater, gathered and brought and laid at her feet." 

The writer above quoted agrees with us. that in no country is biogra- 
phical writing " more desirable than our own, where families are being con- 
tinually lost in each other, where institutions of church and state are continu- 
ally fluctuating, and nothing is fixed but the rocks and mountains " (and he 
might have added that some of these were moved), "we need chroniclers 
and biographers, especially of those who might otherwise be forgotten." 

With great practice "he wielded the pen of a ready writer. He wrote with 
amazing rapidity and with great facility of expression and elegance of style, 
and yet with such accuracy that his manuscripts scarcely show a single 
erasure or correction." " One manuscript of fifty- six pages has but three 
erasures." He was "one of the most valued writers for the New York 
Observer." His known works, " and hundreds of miscellaneous articles 
from his pen, have made his style and name familiar." 

He wrote his ordinary sermons, not trusting his readiness o\ speech. 
"Writing with the utmost facility, rising early and not sitting \v^ late, with 
his writing tablet on his knees, he went through an amount of composition 
that is scarcely credited as possible." 

X 877-J Rev. William Buell Sprague, D.D., LL.D. j 

He was a great collector of books and pamphlets. His own pamphlets 
were numerous, " and as his name was widely known, pamphlets were sent to 
him by thousands. These he had bound in volumes and catalogued, and 
those on secular subjects he presented to the N. Y. State Library at 
Albany ; and with his donation of pamphlels on religious subjects, a large 
niche is filled in the Seminary Library at Princeton. He proved in these 
various ways " one of his own maxims, that variety in labor may be as re- 
freshing as rest from toil." 

" In the quiet of Flushing, within half an hour of the great city, he 
could easily mingle with his friends ; but as the borders of fourscore were 
approached, he preferred the circle of wife and children, whose ministries to 
his comfort, and assistance in his herculean literary tasks, are not surpassed 
in any records of domestic devotion." 

Dr. Sprague was first married September 5, 1820, to Charlotte, daughter 
of Gen. William Eaton, of Bromfield, Mass. She died June 25, 182 1. 
The only child of this marriage, a daughter, lived until 1872, and died at 
Flushing. The "Daughter's Own Book" had this introduction. 

On August 2, 1824, he was. married (2d) to Mary, daughter of Samuel 
Lathrop, of West Springfield, Mass. She died September 16, 1837. On 
13th May, 1840, he was again married to Henrietta B., another daughter 
of Hon. Samuel Lathrop, who survives him. All the children of the second 
and third marriages, who survived infancy, are yet living. There are two 
sons and one daughter by the second marriage ; two daughters and one 
son by the third. 

The Doctor was a member of the State Historical Societies of Vermont, 
Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Penn- 
sylvania, Maryland, Georgia, Iowa, and Wisconsin, also of the Old Colony 
Historical Society, the American Antiquarian, our own G. and B. Society, 
and many other similar associations. 

Our associates will not be content to disregard the Genealogical part. 
The names of Sprague and Bueli have too often appeared in our history, 
to be deemed immaterial. Only the direct lines of these can be briefly 
traced. There were several emigrants named Sprague, and relationship may 
probably be traced to the Spragues of Salem and of Rhode Island. " The 
Genealogy of the Spragues in Hingham " was published in 1828, and a 
"memorial of the Sprague family" in 1847, both imperfect. Many of the 
name are mentioned in other publications. 

I. Among the passengers of the Anne, which arrived at Plymouth in 
July, 1623, were Francis Sprague, his wife, and daughter. He lived at 
Plymouth until about 1633, and removed to Duxbury, where he was living 
in 1666. He was a man of property and influence, and was one of the 
original purchasers of Dartmouth. He had one son, John, and three,

died at Andover, 31st January, 1837, and needs no better eulogy. His wife 
died May 26, 1828, and her family deserves a separate trace. 

I. William Buell emigrated from Wales to this country early in the 
17th century, and was one of the early settlers of Windsor, Connecticut. 

He married Mary , by whom he had two sons, one named Samuel, 

and five daughters. He died at Windsor, Nov. 16, 168 1. His widow died 
Sept. 1, 1684. 

II. Samuel Buell, son of the preceding, was born at Windsor. Sept. 2, 
1641, and married Deborah Griswold on Nov. 13, 1662. He was a magis- 
trate at Windsor, and afterwards at Killingworth, Conn., to which place 
he removed about 1664 as one of its early settlers. He had s±ven sons, 
one named Benjamin, and five daughters. He died July 11, 1720, and his 
wife died Feby. 7, 171 7. 

III. Benjamin Buell, son of the last preceding, was born at Killing- 
worth in 1686. He married Hannah Hutchinson, and had three children, 
Benjamin and Mary (twins), and Submit. He died February 18, 1723. 

IV. Benjamin Buell, son of the preceding, was born at Killingworth, 
April, 4, 1722. He early settled in Andover, Conn., where he married 
another branch of the Hutchinson family. The only child of this marriage 
was John Hutchinson Buell, who entered the army at the commencement 
of the Revolution, was engaged at Bunker Hill, and rose to the rank of 
major. Benjamin Buell' s second wife, Sybil, was a daughter of William 
Buell, of Marlboro, Connecticut, whose name was taken by the subject of 
this sketch. By this second marriage he had three sons and three daughters, 
one named Sybil, who became the wife of VI. Benjamin Sprague. Ben- 
jamin Buell mar. $d Abigail Bartlett, of Bolton, Connecticut, by whom he 
had two daughters. He was a magistrate in the town of Hebron (in Tol- 
land county, south of Andover), and several times a member of the Legis- 
lature ; and died May 11, 1S10. Any one familiar with genealogies, or who 
will take the trouble to trace them, will discover numerous connections of 
this Buell family in the history of our own State, which they have made 
no less attractive.

Benjamin Cock appears as a member of Concord Monthly Meeting of 
Friends in 1728, and in the beginning of the following year was "recom- 
mended" by the meeting as a minister. He was the son of Henry and 
Mary Cock, of Oyster Bay, L. I., and was married 9 mo. 25th, 1731. at 
Birmingham meeting, to Ann, dan. of Joseph and Mary Brinton, of Thorn-

Mary Cock, who appears to have been a sister to Benjamin and Amy. 
came from Long Island and married Nathan Bane, of Goshen. This mar- 
riage was not accomplished according to the rules of the Society, bur she 
afterwards made an acknowledgment for her offence, and obtained a ceitiri- 
cate from Westbury to Goshen M. M. in 1743. In 1755 she was disowned

for her marriage before a justice to (Francis?) Meechem. Of her children 
only the following have been noticed : 

Amy, m. 12 mo. 7, 1758, to Nathan Coope (now Cope). See Gene- 
alogy of Cope Family. 

Elizabeth, m. 11 mo. 11, 1762, to Daniel Hoopes: 

James, m. 4 mo. 25, 1765, to Ruth Wall. 

Deborah, m. 4 mo. 14, 1774, to Samuel Rea. 

Thomas Townsend was a settler in Concord township, where he died in 
1732, as appears by his will, in which he mentions his wife Sarah, and chil- 
dren Nathaniel, Hannah (Underhill), Sarah (Titus), Thomas, and John. 
To his son Nathaniel he devised all his lands on Long Island and in West 
Chester county ; while to his sons Thomas and John he gave ^600. See 
also Mar tin dale's Hist. By berry and Mor eland. 

James Townsend, supposed from Long Island, was a resident in Bir- 
mingham township, where he owned 275 acres of land. His will, dated 
Jan. 8, 1 73 1, and proven April 10, 1732, mentions his wife, Hannah, also 
his son James (to whom he devised the land), and sons-in-law William Brin- 
ton and George Baily. There is no evidence that the father and son were 
Friends ; yet when Azubah Townsend was married to William Brinton, Jr., 
at Birmingham meeting, in appears she had brought a certificate 
from some other meeting. Isabel Townsend was received into membership 
in 1727, and married George Baily in less than two months after, at Bir- 
mingham meeting. 

John Townsend and Catharine his wife produced a certificate from 
Westbury, dated 8 mo. 31, 1722, to Concord M. XL, and settled in West- 
town township. He took an active part in the affairs of the meeting until 
his death, which occurred in January or February, 1 74-J. So far as ob- 
served, his children were : 

Amos, m. Mary James, of Goshen, in 1729. 

Phebe, m. 9 mo. 27, 1729, to John Taylor, of Thornbury. 

Rebecca, m. 9 mo. 20, 1735, to Daniel Mercer, of Westtown, and 
died 10 mo. 13, 1792, aged 82. 

Hannah, m. 3 mo. 12, 1737, to Isaac Vernon. 

Mary, m. 3 mo. 16, 1745, to Isaac Thomas, of Willistown. 

John, m. 6 mo. 5, 1755, t0 Deborah Jones, of Goshen. 

Rachel, m. John Cooper. 

Anne, m. Dennis Wheelen. 

The descendants of this family are numerous in Chester county, and 
among the most respectable citizens. It is desired to know the ancestry 
of John and Catharine Townsend, as well as his relationship to the others 

Jacob Wright, a member of Goshen meeting, was married in 172S to 
Mary Richardson, dau. of Isaac ; but it is supposed that she was not his 
rirst wife. In 1735, after his death, the meeting appointed a committee to 
have some oversight of his children, Susanna and Abigail, of whom the lat- 
ter was placed with her uncle, John Townsend, at rirst, and afterwards with 
her grandmother, Hannah Townsend. 

Richard Hai.lett, of Newtown, L. I., was married 3 mo. 10, 1739. at 
Birmingham meeting, to Ann, widow of Joseph Miller, and dau. of Joseph 
and Hannah Gilpin, of Birmingham.

By Edwin R. Purple. 


Among the early settlers of New Netherland were five* persons bearing 
this name — Govert, Jacob and Pieter Janse Loockermans, and their sis- 
ter Anneken, and a Balthus Loockermans. The modern form of the name 
is Lockerman. but in the early records of the family it is spelt Loocker- 

Balthus or Balthazer Loockermans was perhaps a cousin of the 
others, the exact relationship, being difficult to determine, from the meagre 
records that have come down to us concerning him. He and his wife, 
Engeltje Hendricks, had two children baptized in the Dutch Church in 
New Amsterdam, viz., Jacob, May 28, 1662, and Jannetie, Oct. 14, 1663. 

Pieter Janse Loockermans was in New Amsterdam in January, 1642, 
and we find traces of him here as late as Oct., 1648. In 1656 he was a 
citizen of Beverwyck (Albany.) and purchased there, Nov. 16, of that year, 
a house lot of Hendrik Gerritse (Van Wie or Verwey). In April, 1658, 
he was a boatswain in the West India Company's service. He probably 
had the following children : 

i. Pieter Loockermans, who probably had two daughters, 

viz. : Marritje, married at Albany, Dec. 5, 1694, to Jo- 
hannes Fonda, and Lammertje, married at the same 
place, Nov. 3, 1700, to Ariaen Oothout. 

ii. Maria Loockermans, who married. 1st, Pieter Van Alen, 
of Kinderhook, widower of Maria Teller, and, 2d, in 
1677, Gerrit Van Nes, of Greenbush. 

iii. Hilletje Loockermans, who married, prior to 16S2. Cor- 
nells Stephense Muller, of Greenbush, 1663 ; of Clave- 
rack, 1720. 

iv. Caatje Loockermans, who married, prior to 1683, Jan 
Salomonse Goewey, of Albany. 

v. Anna Loockermans, who married, ist, prior to 1684, 
Adam Winne, of Albany, and, 2d, Oct. 18, 1691, Jacob 
Teunise Van Woert, widower of Catryn Claas, of the 
same place. f 

Jacoe Janse Loockermans also settled in Beverwyck, as early as 1657. 
On the 28th of July, in that year, the Sheriff brought a .suit against him for 
having assaulted Meuwes Hogenboom, and split his face open from his

forehead to bis under lip with his knife ; he was find 300 guilders ($120), 
and ordered to pay for loss of time, board, and surgical attendance. In 
May, 1664, he and John Davits were Commissioners to negotiate a treaty 
of peace between the Mohawks and the Northern Indians, or Abenaquis, 
which they successfully concluded at Narrington, on the 24-th of that month. 
In April, 1667, he purchased a house and lot in Albany, of Willem Jansen 
Schudt, and another July 25, 1684. of Laurence Van Alen. On the 24th 
of August, 1685, he obtained a license to travel, trade, and hunt among 
the'Indians, as far as the Wagganasse and Attawaasse (Ottawas), with a 
company of thirty men. He was probably the Captain Loquerman, who, 
with Arian Abrahamse Schuyler and Jean Blaquerd, were detained as hos- 
tages in Canada by Gov. Denonville. while awaiting a reply to his letter to 
Gov. Dongan, dated Oct. 2, 1687, in which he complained of the infraction 
of the late treaty of peace by the English. He was living Aug. 18, 1700, 
at which date he was a sponsor at the baptism, in Albany, of his grandson 
Jacob, the son of Wessels Ten Broeck and Caatje Loockermans, who were 
married in Albany, April 2, 1684.* 

Anneken [Ann] Loockermans, j. d. Van Turnhout, married Feb. 26, 
1642, Oloft Stephenszen [Van Cortlandt] j. m. Van Wyck in Duurs- 
tede. She probably came out with her brother Govert. on his return to 
New Netherland in Nov., 1641, her name first appearing in the records as 
one of the witnesses at the baptism, Dec. 1, 1641, of his eldest dau. Mar- 
ritje. In the Members Book of the Dutch Church in New York, her hus- 
band's name is recorded Adolph Stephenszen Van Courtl 1 , and at the 
baptism of their children, Olof Stephenszen Van Courtlant and Van Court- 
landt. The name is now spelled, we believe, by the family, Van Cort- 

Olof Stephenszen Van Cortlandt came to New Amsterdam in the ship 
Haring in 1637, a soldier in the West India Company's Service. He was 
promoted by Gov. Kieft, and in July, 1639, appointed Commissary of Car- 
goes, at a salary of thirty guilders ($12) per month. In 1645 was elected 
one of the Board of Eight men to adopt measures against the Indians, and 
in 1649, one °f tne Board of Nine men, of which body the following year 
he was President. He was elected Schepen of the City in 1654. and in 
1655 was advanced to the higher position of Burgomaster, an office beheld 
during the years 1656-58-59, 1662-63 an d l&>$. He was Alderman in 
1666-67, 71, and succeeded Mr. Isaac Bedlow, upon the death of that 
gentleman, in the same office in 1673. His place of residence was in 
the Brouwer Straat, now Stone Street, where he was also engaged in busi- 
ness as a Brewer, in which occupati mi he became wealthy. " He had the 
character of being a worthy citizen and a man most liberal in his 
charities."f He died April 4, 1684, having survived his wife about a year.

1. Govert Loockermans, 1 the most noted of his family, was born at 
Turnhout, a town in the Netherlands, and came to New Amsterdam in 
April, 1633. It appears he left Holland with Director General Wouter 
Van T wilier in the ship Soutberg, which captured on her voyage a Spanish 
caravel, the St. Martin, to which vessel he was transferred, and which was 
brought safely into port. With him came Jacob Wolfertsen (Van Cou- 
wenhoven), whose first wife, Hester Jans, was a sister of Loockerman's 
first wife. Upon his arrival he was taken into the service of the West 
India Company, as clerk, but he soon left this employment and engaged 
in business on his own account. 

In 1640 he went back to Holland, where he married 1st, in Amsterdam, 
Feb. 26, 1641, Ariaentje Jans, with whom he returned to New Amsterdam in 
the ship King David, Job Arentsen, Master, arriving here Nov. 29, 1641. 

On the 20th Jan., 1642, he purchased of Isaac Allerton the yacht Hope, 
in which he was engaged in trade between New Amsterdam and Fort 
Orange (Albany), and intervening points along the river, also to the South 
or Delaware River, and up the Sound to the mouth of the Connecticut. Jn 
July, 1644, while his vessel was passing Beeren Island, on the Upper Hud- 
son, he was hailed by Nicholas Coorn, Commander at Rensselaer's Stein, 
and ordered to lower his colors. On being asked for whom, Coorn re- 
plied, "for the Staple right of Rensselaerswyck." But Loockermans re- 
fused with an oath to strike his flag." for any individual save the Prince ot 
Orange and the Lords, his masters," whereupon Coorn fired several shots 
at his vessel, one of which " went through the sail, and broke the ropes and 
the ladder," and another "perforated the princely colors, about a foot above 
the head of Loockermans, who kept the colors constantly in his hands." 

On the night of the 27th of Feb., 1643, Mary 11 Adriaensen and Govert 

I a Contributions to the History of the • [J^., 

Loockermans, by order of Gov. Kieft, led the attack of a company of citi- 
zens upon a party of Indians who had encamped with their women and 
children, at Corlears Hook. Thirty of the savages were killed while asleep 
and unsuspicious of danger from those they had deemed their friends. Jt 
is said that the recollection of this terrible and needless" massacre, though 
approved by the general sentiment of that time, gave him much disquietude 
during the later years of his life. 

His trading and shipping operations kept pace with the growth of New 
Amsterdam and the river towns, and before 1649 he had two or three 
times visited Holland, and established an extensive commercial corre- 
spondence with that country. He also carried on a large brewing busi- 
ness in Pearl Street, near the present Hanover Square, where he resided. 
In Sept., 1651, he was sentenced to be banished for three years on a charge 
of violating the revenue laws, but this sentence was not enforced, and he 
afterwards held some of the highest positions of honor in the Colony. He 
was one of the Board of Nine Men in 1647-9 and 1650, Schepen in 1657 
and 1660, appointed one of the Orphan Masters Sept. 10, 1663, in place 
of Johannes Van Brugh, Indian Interpeter in 1658, and Commissioner 
in 1663, with Martin Cregier, to extinguish the Indian title to the lands 
from Barnegat to the Raritan. To the honor of the Dutch Settlers, be it 
said that they always pursued an honest course with the Indians in obtain- 
ing their lands by fair purchase. He was also a Commissioner, in 
May, 1653,. with Johannes De La Montagne and David Provoost, ap- 
pointed to attend the investigation of an alleged conspiracy of the Dutch 
and Indians against the English, 

In 1666 he became a resident of Long Island in the vicinity of New 
Utrecht, his wife (by his second marriage) remaining in New York, where 
it appears she was engaged in shop-keeping, an occupation not uncommon 
for the thrifty Dutch women of that period. There is no doubt that he 
married his 2d wife Marritje Jans in the Dutch Church at New Amsterdam, 
July 11, 1649. 

On the 13th of July, 1670, he was commissioned Lieutenant of a com- 
pany of foot in New York, and probably died late in the autumn of that 

He possessed a superior education, for the times in which he lived. Bold, 
adventurous, enterprising, not much troubled with scruples, either in his 
trading intercourse with the Indians, or the more extensive traffic in which 
he afterwards engaged to the Netherlands, he amassed a lar<re fortune, 
and was at his death probably the wealthiest citizen in New York. Dying 
intestate, it became a fruitful source of contention between his heirs for many 
years after. Like his friend. David Provoost, he was a thorn to the Eng- 
lish, who hated him for the influence he wielded over the Indians, and his 
success among them as a trader, by what they termed a " crooked & 
pverse waye." It is recorded that Govert Aertsen, a small trader, was 
obliged to carry, in 1648, for his better protection when visiting the Connec- 
ticut Settlements, a certificate from the Magistrates of New Amsterdam 
that he was not Govert Loockermans. Our New England friends have 
since learned to discriminate better.

This name appears indifferently in the Dutch Church Records as Varick

century.]; Mr. Valentine has asserted that the Rev. Rudolphus Van Varick, 
of Long Island, was the common ancestor of the Varick family in this

State* — an obvious error. Jan Varick, of New York, 1687 — 1702-3, and 
Hackensack, N. J., 1720, probably his brother (if not the common ?), was 
the ancestor of the largest branch of the family bearing this name, both in 
New York and New Jersey. 

Rev. Rudolphus Varick came from Holland about 1685, in which 
year he succeeded the Rev. Casparus Van Zuren as minister of the Long 
Island churches, his residence being at Flatbush; he also occasionally 
ministered on Sunday in the Churches at Bergen and Hackensack, N. J. 
"During the Leislerian troubles, in 1689, Mr. Varick, as well as the other 
Dutch ministers, stood out against the authority of Leisler, and was treated 
with much harshness, being dragged from his home, cast into the jail, de- 
posed from hi's ministerial functions, and fined heavily. These severities, 
which were heaped upon him for alleged treasonable utterances against 
Leisler, undoubtedly hastened his death, f His congregation also were 
divided, and many- of them refused to pay his salary according to the terms 
upon which they called him from Holland — especially, as he says in a 
petition to the Governor, Sept. n, 1691, for the six months of his imprison- 
ment. The Court ordered the arrears of salary due him by his congregation 
to be collected, by distress, if necessary. "J 

His will is dated October 20, 1686 ; proven November 9, 1694. In it 
he styles himself Rev. Domine Rudolphus Van Varick, "Minister of the 
Reformed Dutch Congregacion on Long Island ; " alludes to his children, 
but names only his wife, Margarita Yisboom. 

His widow's will is dated October 29, 1695, with codicil, Nov. 15, 
1695 ; proven January 2. 1695-6. She directs that her body be buried by 
the side of her husband, "if possible, in the Church of Midwout alias 
Flatbush ; " names her daughters Joanna and Cornelia, and a deceased 
dau. Cornelia Hesther (?) ; sons Marinus and Rudolphus ; her sister 
Engeltje ; her niece Maritie (Maria), wife of Nicholas Tienhoven.§ In the 
event of the death of all her children, she bequeaths to her sister Sarah, the 
wife of John Varick, and her niece Maritie, all her property equally. In 
the codicil she adds the name of her eldest sister Engeltje Yisboom, to 
whom with her sister Sarah and cousin Maria, she gives, in case of the death 
of her children, to each one-third of her estate. Appoints Col._Nicholas 
Bayard, Lieut.-Col. Charles Lodwyck, and Mr. Jan Harbendinck, execu- 

Of the children of Rev. Rudolphus Varick and his wife Margarita Vis- 
boom, we are unable to give any other account except of their daughters. 
Joanna married Albert Willet ; m. 1. dated May 10. 1701. (Record, vol. 
iii., page 194.) Cornelia was twice married ; first to Barent De Kleyn (see 
Record, vol. vii., page 148, foot-note), and second, July 22, 1 715, to Pieter 
Van Dyck, Silver Smith in New York, the widower of Rachel Le Roux, 
and son of Dirck Franszen Van Dyck and Urseltie Jans Schepmoes. He 
was bap. Aug. 17, 1684.

t "This is Secretary Clarkson's statement (Doc. Hist. N. V., 8vo., ii. 431, 432") ; but another party, not so 
favorably inclined, says that Varick was at first in favor of the revolution of Lei»ler, and influenced Kings 
County to act unanimously in its favor: but that, afterwards, he was won over to a contrary opinion, and 
created a diversion in the popular mind. The same authority says that he was suspected by the penile 
of conspiring to seize the fort in New York, was arretted, and released, after a time, upon his submission 
to Leisler ; that he favored the execution of the latter, ' made intolerable sermons' against him, and chcnsr.ed 
animosity even to his dying day." — Stiles' Hist. Brooklyn, vol. L, foot-note, p. 169.

Van Wagenen. — Services of Gerrit H. Van Wagenen in the Revolutionary 
War, and Opinion of the Court of Chancery upon his Claims, as expressed 
Nov. 10, 1832. 

(Contributed by Gerrit H. Van WagENEN.) 

The following is a synopsis of his deposition taken in 1832, in answer to interrogatories 
prescribed by the War Department. 

Gerrit H. Van Wagenen was appointed a Second Lieutenant in the Eighth Com- 
pany commanded by Captain John Quackenbos in Col. McDougal's regiment, being the

first Regiment in the New York State Troop?, Lieut. Col. Ritzema, and Major Ledwitz 
being the other field officers. 

A part of the Regt. with which I embarked left New York in August or September, 
*775« tne destination against Canada. From Albany, we marched to the South End of 
Lake George, whence in batteaux we proceeded on Lake George to Ticonderoga, from 
whence again in batteaux we proceeded on Lake Champiain to St. Johns, and joined the 
besieging part of the army there, where the deponent continued until the reduction of 
that place, after which he was ordered with part of the troops to Laprairie, and from 
thence to Montreal, and after being there some days, was ordered to proceed on board of 
a vessel on the St. Lawrence to join the army then besieging Quebec ; — that he wa^> in the 
storming of Quebec, in the columns of Gen Montgomery, who in the attack was killed, 
together with his aid-de-camp, McPherson and Capt. Cheeseman, after which, a retreat 
was ordered, as he understood, by Col. Donald Campbell ; and after again getting into 
Quarters, it was by counsel agreed that Arnold shoaild take the command, and the Siege 
of Quebec, being continued, he was with the army there until the month of May, when 
this deponent was ordered down the country with a number of men, whose term of ser- 
vice had expired. From before Quebec he proceeded up the St. Lawrence to the River 
Sorrelle and up that river to Chamblee, thence to St. Johns, and thence on Lake Cham- 
plain to Ticonderoga. and from thence on Lake George to the South End thereof, where 
was given him in charge, some prisoners taken in Canada in order to carry them to New 
York ; and when arrived there, he was ordered to proceed with thein to Philad Jphia, 
where he delivered them ; and on his return to New York, he found the enemy landing 
upon Long Island, and being a Supernumerary, he went to Long Island, and offered his 
services to Gen'l Sullivan, who requested him, and four other officers, namely Robert 
Troup, Edward Dunscomb, William Guilderland, and Jeromus Hooghland, to go and 
reconnoiter the enemy, who were observed to be in motion, and in the various advances 
on the enemy fell in with a body of Horse and Infantry by whom he and his little party 
were made prisoners, and continued a Prisoner for about twenty-two months. He was 
exchanged in 1778, after which he was appointed to a Captaincy, but owing to some 
whom he had commanded being placed above him, he did not aecept ; — and that in 1779 
he received an appointment in the Commissary of Prisoner's Department under Col. John 
Beatty, Commissary General of Prisoners, and to the best of his knowledge and belief, 
with the pay and rations of a Major. That in the winter of 1779-1780 he was ordered 
to New York with a number of Prisoners, and effected their Exchange for a like number 
of our own, who were then prisoners with the enemy, at which time Gen'l Heath com- 
manded ; — some time after that, he was ordered to take Col. Campbell and his servant of 
the British Army into Verplank's Point, which he effected with some difficulty — the 
enemy having been out the night before, as he understood, had burned Crompond Church, 
which circumstances had so exasperated those who went out in pursuit of the Invaders, 
they were not willing that he should proceed with the Prisoners, their lives being threat- 
ened, and accordingly returned back some distance with those who had been in the pursuit ; 
but finally, considering his orders were imperative, he enquired a by-road, and by that 
route, carried them safely in. He continued in that department about three vears. sta- 
tioned the most of the time at Fishkill and Westpoint. The precise time of his service 
will more fully appear by referring to his accounts, as settled, he thinks, in the Register's 
Office, as he received a final settlement certificate for the balance then due to him from 
the United States, signed by Joseph Nourse, Register. — The deponent has generally un- 
derstood and verdy believes, that he was born in the City of New York, on the 21st day 
of January, 1 753, and of course, now nearly So years old. 

Opinion of the Court of Chancery uponGerrit H. Van Wagenen's claims, as expressed 
Nov. 10th, 1832. 

" And the said Court do hereby declare their opinion, after an investigation of the mat- 
ter, and after putting the interrogatories prescribed by the War Department, that the 
above-named applicant was a Revolutionary Soldier and served as he states, and that 
they have for several years past been well acquainted with the above-named applicant, 
that he is a credible person, and that full faith and credit may be given to his statement. 
And the Court further certifies that it appears to them that Leveritt Bush, who has signed 
the preceding certificate, is a clergyman resident in the town of Oxford, in the County of 
Chenango, and State of New York, and that Mr. Tra:y is a resident in the same place, 
and that they are well known to this Court, and that their statement is entitled to ere lit. 
And that they could not be produced in Court without too much inconvenience and ex- 
pense to the applicant, as they reside about fourteen miles distant from this Court. And 
the Court further certifies that they have the most satisfactory evidence that Leonard

Hall — Duval — Peachy — Cadwalader. — " Arch/Elogical Collections, kr- 


sex Archceological Society," is the title of twenty-four volumes of particular interes>t to 
the genealogist. These are to be found in the Mercantile Library, Philadelphia. 

Vol. XXIV. for 1S72, p. 175, is an interesting article on the Parish Records of South 
Bersted (anciently Berghstead, Berghamstede), Sussex, by Dudley George Cary Llwes, 
F.S.A. An extract is given which may be of service to some of your readers. 

" There is a remarkable entry on one of the first leaves of parchment, as follows : 

* Henry Hall, clerk, minister of the Parish Church of St. James, in Mary-Land, in the 
West Indies, and Mrs. Mary Duval, of Anne Arundel County, in Mary-Land aforesd, 
were marryed by Mr. Joseph Colbatch, Rector of All Hallows Parish in the County 
aforesd, P'ebruary 5th, 1702 ; Henry, the son of the Sd Henry Hall, and Mary his wife, 
was born March 12th, 1 703, and was baptized Aprill 9th following by Mr. Thomas Cock- 
shut, Rector of All Sts Parish in Colvert County, in Mary-Land. Entered into this 
Register by a letter of Request, sent by the Sd Mr. Plenry Hall.' 

" What the family of Hall had to do with this parish I have no idea. The name does 
not occur in the Registers ; at least I do not think it does, excepting in this instance." 

Mention is also made of an early Virginia name in these Records, though it is not 
stated that the family had any connection with the American of the same name. The 
occurrence of the name is worthy of note. It still exists in the Parish. P. 173, " 1609, 
Dammaris Peachy, daughter of John Peachy and Elizabeth his wife, baptized the XlXth 
of September. Sureties Richard Peachy, Mirable More." 

"The Registers begin 1564, and have been fairly kept, the oldest book dating from 
1564 to IC67." 

P. 29, etc., of this volume there are some notes upon a family of Culpepper or Cole- 
pepper, with some attempts to'trace the origin of the name. As this is also an early Vir- 
ginia name, I have called attention to it. 

P. 302. In the church yard of Crawley, Sussex, is an inscription to " Williamina, 
widow of Genl. Cadwalader, citizen of the United States, died September 0, 1837, aged 
84." ' W. J. p.

Bratt. — Can any one give information as to where the will of Dievertie Bratt is re- 
corded? In a deed, recorded in the Register's Office at New York, in Liber 37 of deeds. 
p. 320, her will is referred to, but it does not appear in the index to wills :n the Surro- 
gate's Office of the city. Dievertie Bratt was widow of Isaac Bratt, and daughter of 
Frans Wessels and Tryntje Jans. The deed is dated 1761, but recorded in 1765.

between the years 1621 and 1S00. He will be glad to receive any information from 
parties interested. 

Kollock. — In the July No., Vol. VI, page 157 of the Record, are some inquiries 
respecting Magdalen Kollock and others ; and although I may not be able to throw any 
light on the subject, yet I know- that a little clew sometimes leads to matters of more

John White was a merchant in Philadelphia, in partnership with Abraham Taylor 
(White and Taylor) from 1724 to 1741 (July 27th), after which he went to England and 
by deeds of Lease and Release: May 3d and 4th, 1742, purchased from William Penn, 
grandson of the first Proprietor, 5,000 acres in Pennsylvania, called Perm's Manor. This 
land was located in this (Chester) county and nearly, if not entirely, included in the town- 
ships of Upper and Lower Oxford. 

White obtained a patent for this dated December 12, 1747, but before this he had ex- 
ecuted a letter of Attorney, dated July 31st, 1746, to his nephew, John Swift, of Phila- 
delphia, who sold land in the Manor to various persons. I presume this nephew was the 
one who married Magdalen Kollock, who may have been a descendant of Jacob Kollock 
before mentioned. 

I should have stated that in 1742 John White was "of London," and in 1746 of 
*' Croyden, in Surrey."

cannot commend his work as a model of genealogical arrangement — the author having 
entirely ignored the modern and most approved systems of notation — we take pleasure in 
bringing it to the notice of all who are interested in the families, of which it furnishes a 
valuable collection. The list comprises upwards of forty-six hundred heads of families 
including females. That many errors should have occurred, particularly as to dates, 
among such a multitude of names, is not surprising. Some of these the Author, as far as 
lay in his power, endeavored to correct by an errata at the end of the book. An appar- 
ently full index of names, of thirty-five pages, accompanies the volume. We believe the 
work may be obtained of George A. Davis, of Mexico, Oswego County, N. Y., at $3.00 
per copy. J. J. L. 

The Rawson Family — A Revised Memoir of Edward Kawson, Secretary of 
the Colony of Massachusetts Bay. from 1650 to 1686; with Genealogical 
Notices of his Descendants, including Nine Generations. By E. B. Crane. 
[Motto]. Worcester: Published by the Family. 1S75. 8vo, pp. 334. 

The first edition of this work was published in 1S49, under the editorial supervision of 
Sullivan S. Rawson, and contained 1,460 names. The present very much Improved 
edition contains 5,450 names, descendants of Secretary Edward Rawson. As in the 
former, so also in this edition, no attempt has been made to trace the family in England 
— the sole effort being to revise, correct, and complete the genealogy of the family in 
America. The style of notation adopted is that upon which the Slafter Memorial, pub- 
lished in 1S69, was constructed — a style which contains many points of merit. We com- 
mend this new edition of the Rawson Family Memorial, which contains a goodly amount 
of biographical material, to the attention of our readers. The volume may be obtained 
for $2.75 of E. B. Crane, Worcester, Mass. 

The Life of a Patriot, whom Death deprived of the Honor of Signing 
the Declaration of American Independence, Simon Boerum, of Brooklyn, 
N. Y. Written (for the first time; for the Committee on the Restoration of Inde- 
pendence Hall, Philadelphia. 

This modest little pamphlet of 16 pages octavo, without title-page, and including one 
page of "additions," pasted in, is one of the many historic souvenirs which this Centennial 
year has evoked. It is the work of Franklin Burdge, of 13 Charles St., New York City ; 
being simply an attempt to gather what can now be gathered, and to inquire :or what 
may yet be gathered through the knowledge and kindness of others who are interested in 
these geneological and biographical pursuits, concerning one who seems to have been an 
earnest patriot, and who was deprived by cruel death of the chance of immortality as 
" a signer of the Declaration." The unfortunate abstraction and subsequent loss of the 
Town Records of Brooklyn, for the Revolutionary period, seemed to have utterly deprived 
Mr. Burdge of the ability to give the full history of his hero's share in the public business 
of that important period; yet he has rescued enough scattered scraps and waifs of history 
to prove his right to be honored for undoubted patriotism and ability. Simon B;crum was 
born Feb. 29, 1724, Old Style, at New Lots. Married in 174S into the Schenck family, 
of Fiatlands, and took up his residence near Brooklyn Ferry. In 1750, became Clerk of 
Kings County ; in 1753, Clerk of the Board of Supervisors, holding both offices during 
life. He also represented Kings County in the Colonial Assembly for fourteen years. 
In September, 1774, was a member of the first Continental Congress at Philadelphia ; of 
the N. Y. Provincial Convention in April, 1775 ; and in May of same year, of the Second 
Continental Congress at Philadelphia, from which he returned, early in July, to attend 
the N. Y. General Assembly, then about to assemble at New York. But he died at his 
own house, after a short and sudden illness, July 11, 1775. 

We trust Mr. Burdge will be able to elaborate this very interesting beginning of a 
memoir, and bespeak for him the help of other antiquarians. H. R. s.

Vol. VIII. NEW YORK, APRIL, 1877. No. 2. 


By his Great-Grandson, Col. John Ward, of New York. 

The life of a great and eminently good man leaves an impress on his 
generation, which is very lasting in its effects ; although his fame may be 
overshadowed by that of others, whose good fortune has been to live on 
and reap the reward of their labors. The veil of secrecy, that so long 
rested over the proceedings of the Continental Congress, did no injury to 
the reputation of those members who lived to sign the Declaration of Inde- 
pendence j but in the case of the subject of this memoir, an untimely death, 
by precluding him from signing that immortal document, prevented his 
arduous labors in the cause of his country from being as widely appreciated 
as they deserved. 

Governor Samuel Ward, of Rhode Island, a very prominent member of 
the celebrated Continental Congress, and a patriotic statesman of most 
enlightened views, was born at Newport, R. I., May 27, 1725. He was the 
second son of Gov. Richard Ward, of an ancient family settled in that 
colony, and was descended from the celebrated Roger Williams. He 
received a very thorough education, residing at Newport until he was 
twenty years of age, when he married Anna Ray, and removed to Westerly, 
R. I. There he rapidly rose to prominence and wealth, his agricultural 
and mercantile pursuits proving very remunerative. While residing there, 
he became well acquainted with the distinguished philosopher, Benjamin 
Franklin, who established a' long correspondence with Samuel Ward's 
sister-in law, Catherine Ray. In 1756, Mr. Ward was elected to the 
General Assembly of Rhode Island, and continued to represent Westerly 
in that body until 1759. ^ e t0 ° lK a leading part in the' debates of the 
Assembly, and was speedily looked up to with great respect, early winning 
for himself the wide and commanding influence that his noble character 
and talents deserved. In 1758 he was one of the two delegates represent- 
ing Rhode Island in the Convention called at Hartford, by the Earl of 
Loudoun, to settle the quotas of New England troops in the French war ; 
and reported the proceedings of the convention to the R. 1. Legislature. 

In 1 761 he was appointed Chief-Justice of the Colony, and in May, 
1762, while holding this office, was elected Governor. During his hrst 


cjO Governor Samuel I fan/, of Rhode Island. \\\m\, 

term he was much interested in the wise plan of founding Rhode Island 
College, now Brown University. His name appears among the first 
signers of the petition for a charter, and in 1764 he became one of the 
original trustees, when the college was incorporated by the Legislature. 
His son, Lieut. -Colonel Samuel Ward, was graduated with high honors in 
one of its earliest classes. In 1765 he was re-elected Governor, and, upon 
the passage of the infamous Stamp Act by Parliament, immediately took 
strong ground against its enforcement. The R. I. Assembly in September 
adopted the five celebrated resolutions drawn up by Patrick Henry, of Vir- 
ginia ; to which another, and a bolder one, was added, the whole breathing 
virtually a tone of Independence. The Governors of all the Colonies, 
but one, took the oath to sustain and enforce the odious Stamp Act : 
" Samuel Ward, ' the Governor of Rhode Island, stood alone in his patriotic 
refusal,' " say the historians Bancroft and Arnold. 

In the month of October a Colonial Congress, representing nine colo- 
nies, was held at New York to protest against this oppressive measure : 
Henry Ward, a brother of Gov. Ward's, and noted as holding the office of 
Secretary of Rhode Island for many years, was one of the two delegates 
from his native Colony. The following year, Samuel W T ard was again 
elected Governor, continuing to reside in Newport while in ofhce. His 
future colleague in the Continental Congress, Stephen Hopkins, was gener- 
ally the rival candidate opposed to him, and party feeling in Rhode Island 
ran high, until finally a compromise was agreed upon, and the two "states- 
men became firm friends. After the expiration of his third term of office, 
Governor Ward returned to his home at Westerly, R. I., where he re- 
mained in retirement, closely observing the rapid march of events, until he 
was called to legislate for the whole country. He frequently attended the 
sessions of the General Assembly, although holding no office, and exerted 
a wide influence in the decision of questions of great public interest. 

In consequence of the oppressive acts of the British ministry, Virginia and 
Rhode Island took the lead in establishing standing committees of corres- 
pondence and inquiry, in order to obtain the earliest intelligence of all 
measures of the British government relating to America, and to correspond 
with similar committees in the other colonies. Governor Ward saw the 
advantage of extending this system to all the towns in Rhode Island, and 
accordingly, on the 31st of December, 1773, soon after the patriotic 
destruction of the tea at Boston, addressed a letter to some prominent 
gentlemen of Newport, urging the necessity of establishing such committees 
of correspondence m the various towns of the Colony, and suggesting that 
Newport, their metropolis, should lead the way in this important matter. 
This remarkable letter was signed by himself and several other patriots of 
Westerly, and is as follows : 

"Westerly, 31st. Dec. 1773. 

"♦Gentlemen : — As Liberty, under God, is the parent of wisdom, virtue 
and happiness, and the only security which mankind can have for the enjoy- 
ment of those invaluable blessings, we have beheld with the deepest con- 
cern the many unconstitutional, violent and unjust attacks, which have been 
made upon the liberties of America. Many of these attempts have been 
defeated by the brave resistance of the Americans ; and the Colonies in- 
general have gloriously asserted their just rights and privileges, and placed 
the justice of their cause in a light as clear as that of the meridian sun. 

i877-] Governor Samuel Ward, of Rhode Island. z\ 

But the Administration, insensible of every humane, generous and equita- 
ble sentiment, still continues its vile attempts to enslave us. There is 
therefore the greatest necessity that a general, firm and inviolable Union 
end intercourse of all the Colonies, and of the several towns in each Colony, 
should immediately take place, that the Ministry may be effectually con- 
vinced that an opposition to their measures hath been made, not by a few 
interested, designing, or factious persons, but by the joint concurrence of 
people of all ranks in the several Colonies. 

" To put this matter beyond a doubt, and convince the world that America 
is firmly united and resolved never to give up their liberties, but with their 
lives and fortunes, we think a point of the greatest importance. We are 
sensible that the appointment of committees of correspondence by the 
several Governments will have a most happy tendency in this respect. 

" But we think something further necessary, and can think of nothing so 
effectual as the calling town-meetings in every town in the several Colonies, 
in order to publish to the world their sentiments upon the present alarming 
situation of affairs ; particularly their detestation of, and determination ro 
oppose to the last extremity, the base attempts made by the East India 
Company to establish Tea factors and tax-gatherers amongst us ; and to 
declare the firm resolution of every town to support each other, and espe- 
cially our most worthy brethren in Boston, who have so nobly sustained and 
defeated every ministerial attempt upon their liberties ; and also to mani- 
fest our unalterable resolution to live Freemen, or die gloriously in 
defence of our liberties. 

" With views of this kind, we had thought of calling a town-meeting in 
Westerly ; but as it would be most for the interest of the common cause 
that a measure of such importance should originate in the metropolis, we 
chose to communicate our sentiments to our brethren in Newport ; and as 
you, gentlemen, have generously undertaken to watch over the interests of 
your Country, and point out every attempt upon Liberty, we thought we 
could not address ourselves to any gentlemen in the Colony with so much 
propriety as to you. If the measure suggested by us should appear to you 
in the same important light which it does to us, you will undoubtedly take 
proper measures for carrying it into immediate execution in this and all 
the other governments. 

* We shall expect your sentiments by Mr. S., before we proceed any fur- 
ther ; and have no doubt but that the maritime towns will be supported by 
all the other towns in the Colony. We have only to add, that the crisis, the 
.important crisis which must determine whether the inhabitants of this vast 
continent shall be the greatest and most happy people in the universe, or a 
race of vile, miserable, unhappy, wretched slaves, appears to us to be now 
come. . . . Let us then stand firm, and whatsoever our hands find to do in 
this glorious cause, do it with all our might. May that God, who delivered 
our Fathers from the cruel hands of oppression and persecution, and preserv- 
ed them amidst all the dangers and distress attending their settlement in a 
wilderness, destitute of every necessary of life and inhabited by numerous 
tribes of fierce savages, give us wisdom and virtue to defend those liberties 
they so gloriously purchased and transmitted to us. and to establish our just 
rights and privileges upon a foundation, which shall last as long as the sun 
and moon endure !" 

Gov. Ward wrote in a similar strain to prominent men in other towns 

r 2 Governor Samuel Jf / ard i of Rhode Is/and. [April* 

of the Colony; and, on the second of February, 1774, introduced a series 
of resolutions at a meeting of the town of Westerly, as chairman of the 
committee of correspondence, which fully recite the grievances of which 
the Colonies complained, and urge resistance as the only alternative remain- 
ing to them as freemen. The meeting was very largely attended, and the 
resolutions were adopted without a dissenting voice. 

It is well known that the destruction of the tea in Boston harbor only 
incited the British ministry to more grievous measures ; and the Boston 
Port bill, and other accompanying acts, warned the colonists that no mercy 
was to be expected. These aggressive proceedings powerfully aided in 
precipitating the Revolution. 

On the 17th of May, 1774, at a town meeting in Providence, a general 
Congress of all the Colonies was first proposed ; and on the 15th of June, 
during the session of the General Assembly, Samuel Ward and Stephen 
Hopkins were elected the first delegates from any colony to the Continen- 
tal Congress, which subsequently met at Philadelphia. Two days later, 
Governor Ward addressed a letter, (signed also by Stephen Hopkins), to 
the Hon. Thomas Cushing, Speaker of the Massachusetts House of Rep- 
resentatives. It reads as follows : 

"Newport, 17th May, (?June) 1774. 

" Sir : — The General Assembly of this Colony having in their present 
session resolved that the preservation of America requires a convention 
of representatives from all the Colonies, and appointed us to represent 
this Colony in a Congress ; we take the earliest opportunity to assure you 
that we shall at all times be ready most heartily to concur with your 
Province, and the other Colonies, in all proper measures for effectually 
restoring the peace of America, and establishing the just rights of the 
Colonies. When we consider the distress in which your people are already 
involved, and the danger which threatens us all, we are of opinion no time 
ought to be lost, but that as soon as all the Colonies can have time to 
concur in the measure, the Congress ought to be held. We would by no 
means recommend a time so short as would preclude the more distant 
Colonies from an opportunity of sending commissioners ; for the more 
general, the more important and permanent will be the happy conse- 
quences of it. 

" With regard to the place of meeting, we must observe, that the great de- 
sign upon which we are to assemble is more to be attended to than our 
own personal convenience, and that place where there will be the fewest 
objects to draw the attention oi the commissioners from the great business 
of their meeting must be the fittest place for the Congress. In a govern- 
ment under ministerial instructions some interruptions may be attempted : 
but in one under the direction of the people nothing of that kind can 
happen. For these reasons, and on account of the danger of taking the 
small-pox in some places which may be named, we should like one of the 
places proposed by the committee of correspondence for Connecticut, or 
Prince-town in the Jerseys ; but we will make no difficulties on our own 
account, but will readily join the other commissioners at any time and 
place agreed upon by the majority." 

The Congress met at Philadelphia, September 5, 1774. Governor Ward 
journeyed thither on horseback. His private diary of this and the suc- 
ceeding Congress is still preserved. He writes : 

iS77«] Governor Samuel Ward) of RJwde Island. c^ 

"Arrived in Philadelphia, 30th August, 1774, in the evening. — August 
31st. In the forenoon the delegates from South Carolina and some gen- 
tlemen of the city came to see me ; soon after, the delegates from Boston, 
New Hampshire and of the city (save those out of town), and the Fanner, 
[Mr. John Dickinson]; in the afternoon several gentlemen of the city: 
Mr. Hopkins and lady and the delegates from Connecticut arrived. — 
September 5th. Met at the New Tavern, went to Carpenters' Hall, and 
liking the place agreed to hold the Congress there ; took a list of the dele- 
gates, chose the Honorable Peyton Randolph, President, and Mr. Charles 
Thompson, Secretary ; read the appointments of the delegates, considered 
of the manner of each Colony's voting, and rules for regulating the busi- 
ness, but adjourned until 10 o'clock to-morrow. — 6th. Met at 10 o'clock, 
each Colony to have one vote," etc. etc. — "Mr. Duche desired to open by 
prayer to-morrow at 9 o'clock. — September 7th. Mr. Duche read prayers 
and lessons, and concluded with one of the most sublime, catholic, well- 
adapted prayers I ever heard. Thanks for it, and presented by Mr. dish- 
ing and Mr. Ward. — A committee of two from each Colony appointed to 
prepare a statement of the rights of the colonists, the infringements of 
those rights, and the means of redress. . . . September 22d. The Con- 
gress met, made, and ordered public a request to the merchants not to 
import, and also to direct a delay of orders already sent, until the Con- 
gress came to resolutions on that point," etc. 

Governor Ward entered upon his duties with great zeal for his country's 
welfare, and a sincere wish for Independence, which he maintained 
throughout. He soon became intimately acquainted with Washington, 
then a delegate from Virginia, and what is preserved of their subsequent 
correspondence is very interesting. In a letter to his son Samuel, dated 
at Philadelphia, October 2 2d, 1774, he sums up the proceedings of the 
first Congress as follows : 

" We have formed a bill of rights, a list of grievances, and, for redress 
of those grievances, agreed upon a petition to the king, a non-importation, 
non-exportation, and non-consumption agreements, an address to the 
people of England, another to those of America ; have stigmatized Ber- 
nard Hutchinson and other wretches in Boston, and advised resistance 
and reprisals, in case any attempt should be made to seize and transport 
any persons to England for trial. Our proceedings are to be sent to all 
the Colonies and the West Indies to invite them to join us." 

The Congress adjourned on the 26th of October, after summoning a new- 
Congress for the following May, and the delegates returned home. Sam- 
uel Ward and Stephen Hopkins reported the proceedings to the Rhode 
Island Assembly, at Providence, on the 4th of December, and received 
a vote of thanks for " the wise, spirited and faithful discharge of the impor- 
tant trust reposed in them," and were unanimously re-elected as members 
of the new Congress. 

That body met. at Philadelphia on the 10th of May, 1775, while the 
patriotic excitement occasioned by the battle of Lexington was still ringing 
through the country. Rhode Island immediately proceeded to raise troops 
for the emergency, the commissions of the officers being signed, under au- 
thority of the Legislature, by Gov. Ward's brother, Henry Ward, the Sec- 
retary of the Colony, who was found faithful in the hour of trial ; while Gov- 
ernor Wanton and the Deputy Governor protested against the proceedings, 
and were consequently soon after removed from office. Governor Ward's 

ca Governor Samuel Ward, of Rhode Island. [April, 

son, Samuel, a youth of eighteen, promptly raised a company in King's 
and Kent counties, and received a commission as captain. Governor 
Ward journeyed to Philadelphia, as before, on horseback, and took his 
seat on the 15th of May, becoming immediately very prominent, his name, 
as before, constantly appearing in the journal of the Congress. Nearly 
every day Congress resolved itself into a Committee of the Whole, and 
Governor Ward, on such occasions, was always called to the chair, from 
the 19th of May; the President, Hon. Peyton Randolph, of Virginia, first 
summoning him to this position on that day, and his successor, the cele- 
brated John Hancock, renewing the compliment on the 24th of May, the 
day of his own election as President, and thenceforward. Much of the 
business was prepared during these sessions, and Governor Ward was 
chairman during a very momentous portion of the proceedings, from May 
19th, 1775, to March 13th, 1776. He was chairman of the Committee of 
the Whole, when it was resolved to elect a general for the Continental 
forces, June 15th, 1775, and made his report accordingly, the choice of 
Congress unanimously falling on Colonel George Washington, then, as 
before, a delegate from Virginia. Governor Ward's letters continue to 
throw light on the proceedings of Congress. He writes to his younger 
brother, Henry, Secretary of Rhode Island, as follows : 

"Philadelphia", 22nd June, 1775. 
" Yesterday the famous Mr. Jefferson, a delegate from Virginia, in the 
room of Mr. Randolph, arrived. I have not been in company with him 
yet. He looks like a very sensible, spirited, fine fellow, and, by the pam- 
phlet which he wrote last summer, he certainly is one." 

The celebrated John Adams repeatedly mentions Governor Ward in his 
diary, and entertained a very high opinion of him. Governor Ward's son, 
Samuel, was a captain at that time in Colonel Varnum's regiment, the 
Twelfth Rhode Island, forming originally a part of the "Rhode Island 
Army of Observation," under General Nath. Greene, from May, 1775; 
Governor Ward's influence having brought about General Greene's appoint- 
ment. The Rhode Island troops were encamped at Cambridge, Mass., 
where General Washington assumed command of the forces besieging; Bos- 
ton, on the 3d of July, 1775; and it is said that "only in the Rhode 
Island regiments under General Greene, did Washington discover aught 
of military order, system, discipline and subordination." After the battle 
of Bunker's Hill, in which the Rhode Island troops were not engaged, Cap- 
tain Ward was stationed at Prospect Hill, near Charlestown, where the 
troops underwent a very heavy bombardment from the British, followed by 
constant skirmishing. Governor Ward's letters to his son, at that period, 
as throughout, breathe a most lofty spirit of patriotism. 

The Congress adjourned August 1st until September 5th, 1775, an ^ 
Governor Ward returned to his home at Westerly, R. I. On the 15th 
of August, he wrote to his son, Captain Ward, then stationed at Cambridge, 
as follows : " It gives me inexpressible pleasure to rind General Washing- 
ton so universally acceptable to all the troops. I was sure, from the inti- 
mate acquaintance I had with him, his appointment would certainly be 
attended with the most happy consequences." In another letter to his 
son, written a few days previously, he says : " Never having heard that 
you had been introduced to General Washington, I have enclosed you a 
letter to him. I left it open that you may read it, then seal and deliver it 

rS77-J Governor Samuel Ward, of Rhode Island. 55 

immediately." General Washington shortly after wrote to Governor Ward, 
and says in his letter, dated at Cambridge, August, 1775 : "I did not 
know till yesterday that you had a son in the army ; to-day I had the pleas- 
ure of his company at dinner, together with General Greene. Colonels 
Varnum and Hitchcock had already done me that favor. I think, if occa- 
sion should offer, I shall be able to give you a good account of your son, 
as he seems a sensible, well-informed young man." 

In September, 1775, Captain Ward, with his company, joined Arnold's 
celebrated expedition to Quebec, and underwent the terrible hardships of 
the campaign with great fortitude. Governor Ward's interest in the strug- 
gle continued unabated. Shortly before this, he- writes to a correspond- 
ent : " You wish for peace, so do I, but never upon any other terms but 
those which will secure the liberties of my Country." 

The Continental Congress had adjourned till the 5th of September, but 
a quorum was not obtained until the 13th instant. Governor Ward arrived 
in Philadelphia, September 10th, and immediately resumed his punctual 
attention to public business. He showed his appreciation of General 
Washington's kindness to his son in the following letter : 

"Philadelphia, 17th Sept., 1775. 

"Dear Sir: — Having nothing of immediate consequence to communi- 
cate, and determining to set out for this city in a few days after the receipt 
of your favor, I deferred acknowledging it until my arrival here. 

" I am greatly obliged to you for the very kind notice which you were 
pleased to take of my son, and the favorable light in which you view him. 
The advantages of travelling he wants ; but those of a liberal education 
he enjoys. He has seen some of the best company in our Colony ; and, 
from his moral and political principles, I flatter myself his conduct will 
make him not unworthy of your future regard, every instance of which I 
shall most gratefully acknowledge. 

" With pleasure I observe, that you have lately received some powder, and 
expect some lead and arms, from our Colony. I hope the measures taken 
by Congress, and by the Colonies, will furnish you with such quantities, as 
will allow the freest scope to your military plans and operations. 

"That part of your letter relative to removing the stock from the islands 
and sea-coast, I laid before our General Assembly. I showed the neces- 
sity of immediately doing it, in the most forcible terms ; and such measures 
were immediately adopted, as have, I imagine, secured all our cattle from 
the enemy, by this time. 

" The innumerable difficulties which you must have encountered in the 
command of an army under different establishments, in want of arms and 
ammunition, regular supplies of provisions, a military chest, experienced 
officers, a due organization, and a hundred other things, I have some, 
though not an adequate conception of; but, from the accounts which 
I have the pleasure to receive from my friends in Congress, I doubt 
not but your wise and steady attention to the service will surmount 
all obstacles, and that, by the opening of the next campaign, you 
will have the finest army under your command which ever was formed 
in America. 

11 1 am too sensible of the multiplicity of business in which you are en- 
gaged, to flatter myself with a regular correspondence ; but whenever you 
shall communicate anything necessary for the public good to me, you may 

r6 Governor Samuel Ward, of Rhode Island. [April, 

rely upon my best and constant endeavours, both in our own Colony and 
in Congress, to promote the service. 

" I most cheerfully entered into a solemn engagement, upon your appoint- 
ment, to support you with my life and fortune, and shall most religiously, 
and with the highest pleasure, endeavour. to discharge that duty. — The 
Congress began to do business last Wednesday, but many members 
are still absent. Col. Lee, Col. Harrison and Mr. Jefferson, and the 
North Carolina delegates, and some others, have not arrived. Mr. Ran- 
dolph has been confined with a fever two or three days ; Messrs. Wythe 
and Lee are under Inoculation ; so that Col. Nelson alone attends from 
your Colony. 

M We entered into the consideration of your letters yesterday. For want 
of a thorough knowledge of military affairs, it was not so well understood, 
how an officer's having several appointments could make any difference in 
rank. For instance, how a General officer's having a regiment or company, 
or a field officer's having a company, could alter his rank. It seemed to 
be the general opinion, that all officers should receive pay only for one com- 
mission, and that their highest ; and that when the army was reformed, no 
person should sustain more than one office. But some seemed to appre- 
hend, that if a general officer appointed by his Colony as Colonel of a par- 
ticular regiment, or a field officer as Captain of a company, were refused 
by the Congress commissions as such, that the Colonies would appoint other 
Colonels and Captains in their places. That this increase of officers would 
augment the difficulties attending the reduction of the troops, if such a 
measure should be adopted. Upon the whole, the matter was referred, and 
as soon as your several letters are considered, you will be acquainted with 
the sentiments of the Congress. 

"We have no news here from England later than the iSth of July. By 
the King's answer to the petition of the Lord Mayor, Aldermen, and Com- 
mons, of the City of London, it appears he is determined to pursue and 
enforce his measures. God be thanked, that however severe the contest 
may prove, we are now in such a happy way, that the end must be the es- 
tablishment of American liberty 

Samuel Ward. 

" To General Washington." 

In addition to presiding, almost daily, in Committee of the Whole, Gov. 
Ward was appointed a member of the secret committee to contract for 
arms and munitions of war, and was subsequently chosen chairman of this 
committee. He was also an active member of the permanent committee 
on accounts and claims, a position compelling him to be familiar with all 
the operations of the army, and with the services rendered by each of the 
respective Colonies. He also served upon a large number of special com- 
mittees, to whom matters of the greatest responsibility and moment were / 
constantly referred. On account of the physical disability of his colleague, 
Gov. Hopkins, the official correspondence of the R. I. delegation with the 
government and citizens of the Colony was also wholly thrown upon Gov. 
Ward. In the month of October he writes to his family: "I am almcst 
worn out with attention to business. I am upon a standing committee of 
claims, which meets every morning before Congress, and upon the secret 
committee which meets almost every afternoon ; and these, with a close 
attendance upon Congress, and writing many letters, make my duty very 

iS77«] Governor Samuel Ward, of Rhode Island, cj 

hard, and I cannot get time to ride or take other exercise. But I hope 
the business will not be so pressing very long." 

On the 30th of September he writes to his brother Henry as follows : 
u No news from England since my last. The gentlemen of Georgia deserve 
the character I gave you of them ; they are some of the highest sons of 
liberty I have seen, and are very sensible and clever. Mr. Wythe and Mr. 
Lee, of Virginia, have been under inoculation since my last, so that I can 
say no more of these than I did then. Saving that unhappy jealousy of 
New England, which some weak minds are possessed with, great unanimity 
prevails in Congress ; our measures are spirited, and I believe we are now 
ready to go every length to secure our liberties. John Adams' letter has 
silenced those who opposed every decisive measure ; but the moderate 
friends, or, as I consider them, the enemies of our cause, have caused 
copies of it to be sent throughout the province, in hopes, by raising the 
cry of Independence, to throw the friends of liberty out of the new Assem- 
bly, the choice of which commences next Monday ; but I believe thjey will 
fail, and that the House will be more decided than ever. One comfort we 
have, that divine wisdom and goodness often bring good out of ill. That 
the issue of this same contest will be the establishment of our liberties, I 
as firmly believe as I do my existence ; for I never can think that God 
brought us into this wilderness to perish, or, what is worse, to become slaves, 
but to make lis a great and free people." 

The Rhode Island Assembly was the first to advocate the building of an 
American navy, and instructed their two delegates accordingly. On the 
3d of October, 1775, Governor Ward wrote in his diary, with reference to 
his duties in Congress, as follows: "Presented our instructions for carry- 
ing on the war effectually, and building an American fleet." These instruc- 
tions were for the present laid upon the table, and were not finally acted 
upon till the nth of December, when Congress, according to its journal, 
" took into consideration the instructions given to the delegates of Pvhode 
Island, and after debate' thereon, Resolved, That a committee be appointed 
to devise ways and means for furnishing these colonies with a naval arma- 
ment, and report with all convenient speed." Two days following, the 
committee reported in favor of building thirteen ships. After a full debate 
the report was adopted by Congress, and the ships were ordered to be built 
at the expense of the United Colonies. The following day Gov. Ward 
wrote to his brother : " I have the pleasure to acquaint you that, upon 
considering our instructions for a navy, the Congress has agreed to build 
thirteen ships of war. A committee is to be this day appointed, with full 
powers to carry the resolve into execut'on. Powder and duck are ordered 
to be imported. All other articles, it is supposed, may be got in the Colo- 
nies. Two of these vessels are to be built in our Colony, one in New 
Hampshire, etc. The particulars I would not have mentioned. The ships / 

are to be built with all possible despatch." 

While this important project was under discussion, the ill-judged con- 
duct of the British ministry was strengthening the hands of true patriots like 
Governor Ward. On the 2d of November, he writes to his brother : 
" The evening before last, two ships arrived from England. The advices 
which they bring, (amongst which is a proclamation for suppressing rebellion 
and sedition), are of immense sen-ice to us. Our councils have been 
hitherto too fluctuating ; one day measures for carrying on the war were 
adopted ; the next, nothing must be done that would «vviden the unhappy

breach between Great Britain and the Colonies. As these different ideas 
have prevailed, our conduct has been directed accordingly. Had we, at 
the opening of the Congress in May, immediately taken proper measures 
for carrying on the war with vigor, we might have been in possession of all 
Canada, undoubtedly, and probably of Boston. Thank God, the happy 
day which I have long wished for is at length arrived ; the southern colo- 
nies no longer entertain jealousies of the northern ; they no longer look 
back to Great Britain ; they are convinced that they have been pursuing 
a phantom, and that their only safety is a vigorous, determined defence. 
One of the gentlemen, who has been most sanguine for pacific measures, 
and very jealous of the New England colonies, addressing me in the style 
oi Brother Rebel, told me he was now ready to join us heartily. "We 
have got," says he, "a sufficient answer to our petition; I want nothing 
more, but am ready to declare ourselves independent, send ambassadors," 
etc., and much more which prudence forbids me to commit to paper. Our 
resolutions will henceforth be spirited, clear and decisive. May the 
Supreme Governor of the universe direct and prosper them ! The pleas- 
ure which this unanimity gives me is inexpressible. I consider it a sure 
presage of victory. My anxiety is now at an end. I am no longer 
worried with contradictory resolutions, but feel a calm, cheerful satisfaction 
in having one great and just object in view, and the means of obtaining it 
certainly, by the divine blessing, in our own hands." 

The condition of the army in Massachusetts at this time engaged Gov. 
Ward's attention very much, as the difficulties attending the establishment 
of the Continental system among troops enlisted under the authority of 
the several Colonies were very great. Congress was much perplexed by 
these difficulties, which are constantly alluded to in General Washington's 
letters to that body. Gov. Ward held a correspondence with General 
Greene on this subject, which threw additional light on these embarrass- 
ments, Gen. Greene giving him the most accurate information on all the 
points in question. The Colony of Rhode Island at this period was suffering 
the consequences of its patriotic attachment to the cause of Independence, 
as the British ships, under command of Captain Wallace, taking advantage 
of the exposed condition of its shores, sent parties of marauders, who 
devastated the country threatened by the fleet. Gov. Ward writes to his 
brother at this time : ", I have traced the progress of this unnatural war 
through burning towns, devastation of the country, and every subsequent 
evil. I have realized with regard to myself the bullet, the bayonet, and 
the halter; and, compared with the immense object I have in view, they 
are all less than nothing. No mm living, perhaps, is more fond of his 
children than I am, and I am not so old as to be tired of life ; and yet, as 
far as I can now judge, the tenderest connections, and the most impor- 
tant private concerns are very minute objects. Heaven save my country ! 
I was going to say, is my first, my last, and almost my only prayer." 

During the autumn, the subject of fortifying the Highlands of the Hud- 
son River also occupied the attention of Congress, and Governor Ward 
mentions in his diary, " that a committee was appointed to consider the 
subject of the fortifications ordered to be erected on the Hudson River," 
and that "Gen. Wooster was ordered, unless counter-ordered by Gen. 
Schuyler, to come down to the Highlands, leave as many troops as 
the managers of the works think necessary, and repair with the remainder 
to New York." On the 12th of December, 1775, he writes to his brother : 

iS77-] Governor Samuel Ward, of Rhode Island. ^g 

" The contest between the two countries involves a question of no less 
magnitude than the happiness or misery of millions, and when we extend 
our views to future ages, we may say millions of millions. Our views, 
therefore, ought to be extensive, our plans great, and our exertions ade- 
quate to the immense object before us, and such, I doubt not, will be the 
conduct of Congress." 

During this time, Governor Ward's favorite son, Captain Samuel Ward, 
was participating in all the hardships and horrors of Arnold's celebrated 
march to Quebec through the wilderness of Maine. The sufferings which 
these brave soldiers underwent were almost unparalleled, while, as is well 
known, after displaying the most desperate courage in the attack on Que- 
bec, December 31st, 1775, and penetrating far into the city, the very bravest 
of them were outnumbered and made prisoners, Captain Samuel Ward 
being among the number. The news of this disaster reached Congress on 
the 17th of January, 1776, by despatches from General Schuyler, and Gov- 
ernor Ward was appointed on the committee to whom these despatches 
were referred. On the 2Tst, he wrote to his son as follows : "I most de- 
voutly thank God that you are alive, in good health, and have behaved 
well. You have now a new scene of action, to behave well as a prisoner. 
You have been taught from your infancy the love of God, of all mankind, 
and especially of your country ; in a due discharge of these various duties 
of life consist true honor, religion and virtue. . . . All ranks of people 
here have the highest sense of the great bravery and merit of Colonel Ar- 
nold and all his officers and men. Though prisoners, they have acquired 
immortal honor." . . . On the 10th of February, he writes to another 
son (John), in Rhode Island : "I am pleased with the account which you 
give me of the military operations in the Colony. I expect we shall sutler 
much ; I hope we shall bear it as becomes Freemen, and have no doubt 
but Heaven will crown our generous efforts with success." A few days 
before, he wrote to his brother Henry : " Dr. Franklin, upon my mention- 
ing to him a letter from the Governor, relative to making powder, gave me 
a receipt from some author, which I enclose." . About the same time, he 
writes to his sister : " When I consider the alarms, the horrors and mischiefs 
of war, I cannot help thinking what those wretches deserve who have 
involved this innocent country in all its miseries. At the same time I adore 
the Divine Wisdom and Goodness which often overrules and directs those 
calamities to the producing of the greatest good. This, I humbly hope, 
will be our case. We may yet establish the peace and happiness of our 
native country upon the broad and never-failing basis of liberty and virtue. 

"When I reflect upon this subject, and anticipate the glorious period, 
the dangers of disease, the inconveniences experienced in my private 
affairs, the almost unparalleled sufferings of Samuel," (his son, Captain 
Ward), " and all that my dear children and friends do or can suffer, appear 
to me trifling." On the 4th of March, he writes to his -brother : u The 
abandoning our islands must be a very heavy loss. . , . The Congress is 
taking measures for the defence of all parts of the continent : New York. 
New Jersey, Pennsylvania, the lower counties" [Delaware] a and Mary- 
land, are made a middle department, under General Schuyler; Virginia, 
North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia, the southern department, 
under General Lee, who will soon be detached there.- Six brigadiers are 
appointed for these Colonies. . . . There are above thirty battalions 
raising or raised in these departments, and more can be raised, so that I

hope the enemy may meet a proper reception in any quarter. A com- 
mittee is appointed by Congress to contract for the making of arms ; this 
is a matter of immense importance. . . . This moment a vessel a 
arrived from Europe, with "twenty-five tons of powder. . . . General 
Lee is fortifying New York. The Captain of the enemy's ships gave out 
they would fire on the town. General Lee, in return, gave out that if they 
did, he would chain a hundred of their best friends together, and the first 
house they set on fire should be their funeral pile." 

The last letter, in the handwriting of Governor Ward, is dated at Philadel- 
phia. March nth, 1776. He writes to his son, Captain Samuel Ward, in the 
lofty strain of religious patriotism he has made familiar to us, and in closing 
says : "Dr. Franklin does me the favor to take charge of this letter." 

Gov. Ward continued his unremitting attention to his duties, constantly 
presiding over Congress in Committee of the Whole, etc., until the 15th 01 
March, when he was obliged to leave the session owing to a violent attack 
of illness, which the following morning proved to be small-pox. He died 
of this fatal disease on the 26th of March. Dr. Young, who attended him, 
wrote the same day to Gov. Ward's brother as follows : "It is with the 
most heartfelt grief, with the deepest affliction and pungent regret, that I 
inform you, the patriotic Samuel Ward, Esq., left his anxious, his numerous 
friends m this city to bewail their loss of one of the most able, consistent 
and determined defenders of American Liberty in his person, who departed 
life at 2. a.m. this morning, of that tremendous disease, the small-pox. 
taken in the natural way." The following day, Gov. Ward's colleague, the 
Hon. Stephen Hopkins, wrote to the Secretary of Rhode Island on the 
same subject. He says ; " I am very sorry to be under the necessity of 
writing so disagreeable news as the death of your brother, the Honorable 
Samuel Ward Esq. must be. He first found himself a little out of order on 
Wednesday, the 13th of March, and on that and the two following days he 
attended Congress, but on the last of them he was so poorly as to be 
obliged to leave it before it rose, and on Saturday the 16th, in the morning, 
the small-pox appeared plainly. . . . He continued with the bad symptoms 
rather increasing until yesterday morning about two o'clock, when he 
expired without a groan or struggle. He appeared to have retained his 
senses quite thro' his whole disorder, even to the last. 

11 His funeral is to be attended this day at three o'clock by the Congress as 
mourners, by the General Assembly of the province of Pennsylvania, by 
the Mayor and Corporation of the city of Philadelphia, the Committee of 
Safety of the Province, and the Committee of inspection of the city and 
liberties; the clergy of alldenominations preceding the corpse, six very 
respectable gentlemen of this city being pall-bearers. He will be carried 
into the great Presbyterian Meeting-house in Arch street, where a funeral 
discourse will be delivered by the Rev. Mr. Stillman. The corpse will 
from thence be carried to the Baptist burying ground in this city and there 
interred. . . Your very affectionate friend 

"Step. Hopkins." 

Dr. Young also says in his letter: "So full, so firm, so capable, so indus- 
trious was Mr. Ward, that his loss will be severely felt in the Congress. 
One, at least, of the mighty advocates for American Independency is fallen 
in Mr. Ward, to the great grief of the proto-patriot Adams." John Adams 
mentions Gov. Ward's death in a letter as follows: "We have this week

lost a very valuable friend of the Colonies, in Governor Ward of Rhode 
Island, by the small-pox in the natural way. . . . He was an amiable and 
a sensible man, a steadfast friend to his country, upon very pure principles. 
His funeral was attended with the same solemnities as Mr. Randolph's ; Mr. 
Stillman, being the Anabaptist minister here, of which persuasion was the 
Governor, was desired by Congress to preach a sermon, which he did with 
great applause." 

Many years after, in 1821, John Adams thus speaks of his character in 
a letter to one of his descendants : "He was a gentleman in his manners, 
benevolent and amiable in his disposition, and as decided, ardent, and uni- 
form in his patriotism, as any member of that Congress. When he was 
seized with the small-pox, he said that if his vote and voice were necessary 
to support the cause of his country, he should live, if not he should die. 
He died, and the cause of his country was supported, but it lost one of its 
most sincere and punctual advocates." 

Governor Ward's remains were interred in the First Baptist Church, and 
a monument was erected over the spot by an Act of the General Assembly 
of Rhode Island, passed the following May, which pays this tribute to his 
memory: "W T hereas the Honorable Samuel Ward, Esq., late a delegate 
for this Colony in the Continental Congress, hath lately deceased in the 
city of Philadelphia ; in testimony of the respect due to his memory, and in 
grateful remembrance of his public services, — Resolved, that his executors 
or administrators are desired, as soon as maybe, to exhibit to this Assembly 
an account of his funeral expenses, for payment. And it is further resolved, 
that the delegates for this Colony, for the time being, be instructed to erect 
a decent tombstone, or monument of marble, with such inscription as they 
shall think suitable, over the place where his body hath been deposited, at 
the expense of this Colony." The monument was duly erected, and the 
inscription was written by the celebrated John Jay. Gov. Ward's remains 
reposed in Philadelphia until i860, when they were removed to the family 
plot in the Cemetery at Newport, Rhode Island, where the monument 
ordered by his native Colony still covers the ashes of one of the truest and 
most patriotic statesmen of the Revolution. 

A striking feature of Gov. Ward's character was his remarkable grr.sp 
of mind, and statesman-like breadth of view. His letters show an appre- 
ciation of the critical situation of the Colonies, before it had fairly dawned 
upon the minds of any but a very few statesmen like himself. As the cri-is 
approached, he rose to the situation, and evinced an unalterable desire 
for Independence, which was intensified as the struggle' proceeded. The 
noble career of his son, Lieut.-Colonel (then Captain) Samuel Ward, in the 
Revolutionary army equalled his expectations, and fanned his love of 
country to a still holier flame. The letters he addressed to his favorite son 
and other relatives breathe a religious spirit and devout trust in Providence, 
accompanying and enhancing his intense patriotism. Gov. Ward's religious 
character was remarkably developed, and a lofty spirituality pervades his 
writings, apparently stimulating his courage and earnestness in the great 
national work in which he was engaged. So thoroughly unselfish was he, 
and so regardful of his duty to his country, that, while aware of the danger 
he was running of taking the fatal disease of which he died, he felt that he 
could not spare time from his patriotic labors to be inoculated, and thus 
fell a victim to a conscientious discharge of his public duties. The 
country could ill afford to lose so noble an example of the best virtues of 
that greatest period in our national history, the American Revolution. 

5o The Martense Family. [April, 


By T. G. Bergen, of Bay Ridge, L. I. 



















The Martense family of Kings Co., N. Y., which at one period was 
quite numerous, owning many farms in said locality, is, in its male 
branches, nearly extinct, Jaques V. B. Martense, of Flatbush, and his 
son Adrian V., being its sole survivors. This family in this respect differs 
from the mass of the early settlers of Netherland or Huguenot descent, 
who have multiplied and spread themselves over the land. 

Adriaen Reyersz and Marten Reyersen*, brothers, emigrated to 
this country from Amsterdam in 1646, the former settling in Flatbush. 
From their names it is evident that their father's name was Reyer,, 
or Reyersen, meaning son of Reyer; bat what his surname was, if any, 
does not appear. 

The descendants of Marten have adopted the surname of Ryerson, 
some of those of Adriaen that of Adrianse, and those of Marten the 
son of Adriaen, that of Martense.

By Edwin R. Purple. 


The transatlantic pedigree of this family has appeared in various Amer- 
ican publications within the last thirty years, and while generally agreeing 
in the account given of Ruloff De Kype, the first known ancestor of the 
family in Europe, the statements in reference to the immigrant ancestor to 
America, Hendrick Hendrickszen Kip, have not always been in accord 
with each other. It is impossible that the latter was the son of Ruloff De 
Kype a , anglicized to Kip, for had he been, his name would have appeared 
in our early records as Hendrick Ruloffszen Kip, instead of as we now find 
it, Hendrick Hendrickszen Kip. From this fact and for the reason that 
no authority for the European pedigree has been given in the publications 
referred to, it must with all such of like character, be regarded with suspi-

cion.* It has been the intention in these contributions, to confine our 
researches chiefly to the immigrant ancestors of old New York families 
and their immediate descendants, drawing the materials therefor, when 
not otherwise indicated, from the Records of the Reformed Dutch Church 
in New York, and from New York wills and conveyances. 

i. Henry Hendrikszen Kip* (Kype), the ancestor of the Kip family 
of New York, came to New Amsterdam prior to 1643, w "** n ms w ^ e > prob-

Amsterdam. It is probable that his sixth child Femmetje was born here, 
his name appearing at her baptism, April 19, 1643, as Mr. Hendrick Hen- 
dricksz. He was perhaps of noble lineage, as it is related that the arms 
of the family were painted on the stained-glass windows of the first church 
erected in New Amsterdam. They were also carved in stone over the 
door of the Kip's Bay house, which is said to have been built in 1655 \, by 
his son Jacob. § They are described as follows: " Azure, a chevron cr, 
between two griffins sejant and a sinister gauntlet apaume (tinctures not

was a warm partisan of Francis Duke of Guise, the furious and bigoted leader of the Catholic party agai;i?t 
the Huguenots. On the triumph of the Protestants, which occurred soon after the general massacre of the 
inhabitants of Vassey in Champagne, in 1562, he fled to Holland with his three sons, where they lived for 
several years under an assumed name. In 1569, he returned to France with his son Henri, joined the army 
of the Duke of Anjou, and fell in battle near jarnac, March 13, of that year. He was buried by his son jean 
Baptiste, in a small church near Jarnac, where an altar tomb was erected to his memory. " The inscrip:: .a 
on the tomb mentioned him as Ruloff De Kype, Ecuver (this title designating a gentleman who had a 
right to coat armor), and was surmounted by his arms, with two crests, one a game-cock, the other a demi- 
griffen holding a cross, both of which crests have been used by different branches of the family in this coun- 
try." He left z'ssue 

i. Henri 2 , who after his father's death entered the army of one of the Italian princes, 

and died unmarried. 
ii. Jean Baptiste 2 . a priest in the Church of Rome. 

lii. Ruloff2. born 1544 ; he remained in Holland, became a Protestant, and settled at 

Amsterdam. He seems to have dropped from his name the French prerix De. 
He died in 1596, leaving issue: 
i. Hendrick 3 Un English Henry), born 1576. "On arriving at manhood, he took an 

active part in the ' Company of Foreign Countries.' an association formed k>r the 
purpose of obtaining access to the Indies, by a different route from that possessed 
by Spain and Portugal. They rirst attempted to sail round the northern if 
Europe and Asia, but their expedition, despatched in 1594, was obliged to return 
on account of the ice, in the same year. In 1609, they employed Henry Hudson 
to sail to the westward, in the little Half Moon, with happier result." He came 
to New Amsterdam in 1635, with his children, and some years after returned to 
Holland, where he died. [He did not return to Holland, but lived and died in 
New Vork.l His sons remained in New Amsterdam, and rose to important posi- 
tions as citizens and landed proprietors. He m. Margaret de Marne-.l. and had

*'t Bishop Kip gives her name Margaret de Marneil ; Margaret was not a family name among the earff 

Kips, and does not appear in the famdy before the first quarter of the last century. The name of Trynlse 

Kip is recorded in the list of old members of the Dutch Church of New Amsterdam, on the *econd 1ms 

below that of Hendrick Kip. in the original record. As Tryntje, or Catharine, was a common name amonj 

the Kips, I have thought it probable that Tryntie Kip above' alluded to, was the wife of Hendrick Kip', and 

that perhaps her family name was DROOGM, as Jacob Hendncksen Kip-', son of Hendrick Hendricksen 

Kipi, in 1647, gave to his uncle Harman Hendricksen Droogh, a power of attorney to receive money d-e 

him by the West India Company at Amsterdam. (Calendar N. Y. Hist. MSS. Dutch, page 40.)

Netherland, and reputed builder, was then a ten-year-old lad.

Hendrick Snyder Kip. To a " resolution adopted by the Commonalty of 
the Manhattans" in 1643, he signs his name, Heindrick Heindricksen 
Kype. On the 28th April, 1643, he obtained a patent for a lot east of the 
fort, in the present Bridge Street near Whitehall, where he erected his 
dwelling-house and shop.* He appears to have been a man of marked 
individuality and to those he loved not, bitter and unrelenting, a quality of 
character his wife seems to have shared with him. The indiscriminate 
massacre of one hundred and ten defenceless Indians, men, women and 
children at Corlears hook, and Pavonia, on the night of February 25, 1643, 
instigated and ordered by Director-General Kieft, aroused in the breast of 
Hendrick Kip a feeling of extreme hatred for that official, and he boldly 
urged that he should be deposed and sent back to Holland. f On the 30th 
August, 1645, me Court Messenger (Philip de Truy) was ordered to notify 
the inhabitants to assemble in the fort when the colors are hoisted and the 
bell rung, to hear the proposals for a treaty of peace about to be concluded 
with the Indians. The Messenger reported that all the citizens on the 
Manhattans " from the highest to the lowest," would attend as they all had 
answered kindly, except one Hendrick Kip, the tailor. + While the entire 
community were willing to show some respect for Kieft on this public occa- 
sion, the sturdy old burgher alone exhibited contempt for the " man of 
blood," and refused to do him honor. 

After the departure of Gov. Kieft for Holland, which he was destined 
never again to reach, § Hendrick Kip became at once one of the leading 
men in New Netherland. He was appointed by Gov. Stuyvesant's Council, 
Sept. 25, 1647, one of the board of Nine Men, selected "from the most 
notable, reasonable, honest, and respectable" of the citizens of the com- 
monalty, to assist the Director, or Governor, and Council ; this office he 
also held in 1649, an d 1650. He was a Schepen in 1656, appointed Feb. 2d, 
of that year, and was admitted to the rights of a great burgher April 11, 
1657.ll He was probably the Hendrick op Kippenburg who was a witness, 
March 24, 1664, in a suit between Govert Loockermans and Burger Joris, 
respecting the title to land in the Smith's Valley. - ! After the surrender of 
New York he took the oath of allegiance to the English in October, 1664. 
The name of Hendrick Kip, Senior, appears in the list of citizens who 
were assessed April 19, 1665, to pay the board and lodging of soldiers 
belonging to the city garrison.** This is the last mention found of him. 
The names of Hendrick and Tryntie Kip, probably his wife, are recorded 
in the list or register ff of old members of the Dutch Church of New Amster- 
dam. Opposite his name Domine Selyns has written "obyt op Kippenburg," 
but the date is not given. In what part of Manhattan Island, Kippenburg 
was located is not known ; perhaps hicleuburg, or Fire Beacon Hill, 

* Valentine's Manual, 1852, p. 389. 

+ May 6. 1643, Samuel Chandelaer made affidavit, that he heard Hendrick the tailor say : The Kivit 
(meaning the director), ought to be packed off to Holland in the Peacock, with a letter of recoramendari >n 
to Master Gcrrit (the public executioner), and a pound flemish, so that he may give him a nobleman's 
death. (Calendar N. V. Hist. MSS. Dutch., p. 22 ; see also O'Callaghan's Hist. New Netherland, voL

§ He sailed from New Amsterdam in the Princess. August 16, 1647. On the 27th September following, 
the vessel was cast away on the coast of Wales near Swansea, and eighty-one persons, men, women, and 
children, perished, including Kieft. Fiscaal Cornelius Van der Huyghens, and the Rev. Everardus Bugardus.

Concerning his wife the following is taken from the Court proceedings at 
New Amsterdam, Sept. 29, 1644. William de Key vs. Hendrick Kip: 
action for slander ; ordered that defendant's wife appear next Thursday, 
and acknowledge in court, that what she said to the prejudice of the plain- 
tiff is false, and not to repeat the offence on pain of severe punishment.* 
She probably acknowledged her fault, whatever it may have been — as 
ordered by the court, as we find no further account of the matter. On 
Dec. 17, 1646, the Schout-Fiscal (Cornelius Van der Huyghens) charged 
her before the court w r ith calling the Director (Kieft) and Council false 
judges, and the Fiscal a forsworn Fiscal. Hendrick Kip states that his 
wife has been so upset, and so out of health, ever since Maryn Adriaensen's 
attempt to murder the Director General (March 21, 1643), tnat when dis- 
turbed in the least she knows not what she does. Mrs. Kip denies the 
charge, and the parties are ordered to produce evidence on both sides.)- 
What further proceedings, if any, in the case were taken, the records fail 
to disclose. She and her husband were sponsors, July 4, 1657, at the 
baptism of Anthony, son of Jan Janszen Van St. Obyn (alias Jan Wanshaer), 
which is the last notice found of her, where her identity can be clearly 
established. They probably had issue.

8. Isaac Hendrickszen Kip 2 (3), born in Amsterdam. He was 
admitted to the rights of a great burgher with his father, April n, 1657. 
On the 21st June, 1656, he and his brother Jacob obtained each a patent for 
a lot of land in the sheep pasture at New Amsterdam. This locality, used 
for the purpose indicated during nearly the whole period of the Dutch pos- 
session, is described by Mr. Valentine * as lying south of the city ramparts 
(which stretched across the Island about forty feet above the present line 
of Wall Street), and "covering the present Wall Street and the block between 
Wall Street, Exchange Place, Hanover Square, and Broad Street." Nassau 
Street between Ann and Spruce was originally called Kip Street after one 
of the family.f Mr. Valentine says it was that part of Nassau Street below 
Maiden Lane, and so called in compliment to Jacob Kip the Secretary. 

> Isaac Kip was a Yacht Captain, engaged in the river trade between New 
Amsterdam and the settlements at Esopus (Kingston) and Fort Orange 
(Albany). J; In 1665 he was living in De Brouwer Straat, now Stone Street. 
He married first, Feb. 8, 1653, Catalyntje Hendrick Snyers (Snyder?). 
She was probably the dau. of -Hendrick Janszen Snyder, or Hendrick Jans- 
zen the tailor, and his wife Geertje Scheerburch. Mr. Valentine § says she 
was a daughter of Gillis Pietersen (Meyer), but he has mistaken the relation- 
ship. She was probably the sister-in-law of Jillis or Gillis Pietersen (Meyer) 
who married July 6, 1642, Elsje Hendricks, dau. of Hendrick Janszen Sny- 
der above named. Isaac Kip married second, Sept. 26, 1675 *t ^~ ew 

-Harlem, Maria Vervelje (Vermilye), widow of Joh. (Jean) de La Moritagne./ 
By his second wife he had no issue. He was living, in December, 1675, 
at New Harlem, and then belonged to the first corporalship of night watch 
in that place. || He died prior to October 6, 1686. Issue : 

9. i. Hendrick, 3 bap. Feb. 8, 1654. Mr. Holgate in his American

ther, were co-patentees of the Manor of Kipsburg, a tract of land on the 
east side of Hudson river where Rhinebeck now stands, extending four miles 
along the river and several miles inland. This patent dated June 2, 16S8, 
confirmed an Indian title to the land given July 28, 1686. He was probably 
the Lieut. Hendrick Kip of Capt. Baltus Van Kleeck's Company of Foot, 
in 1700, one of the eight Militia Companies in the counties of Ulster and 
Dutchess. •[ He married and had a number of children who settled in the

drick 3 (9) of the Manor of Kipsburg, and who died Feb. 2S, 1753. ^ r - 
Holgate makes a mistake which is followed by Bishop Kip in saying that 
he was twice married, and first to Mrs. Flenrietta (Henclrickje) Wessels, 
widow of Gulian Verplanck. - It was his cousin Jacobus 3 (iS) who married 
this lady. He married Rachel Swartwout, and though Bishop Kip calls her 
the daughter of John Swarthout (Swartwout), Esq., I think it more probable 
that she was the dau. of RoelofT Swartwout, first Sheriff of Wiltwyck, at 
the Esopus, and commissioned Dec. 24, 16S9, a Justice of Ulster County. 
Both Bishop Kip and Mr. Holgate give the date of her birth April 10. 1669, 
and her death Sept. 16, 171 7. She was living Oct. 2, 1726, and with her 
husband, then called Jacob Kip, Senior, was sponsor at the baptism of 
Rachel, daughter of their son Isaac.

Johanne Lorillard, died 19 December, 1801, aged 30 years and* 7 months, wife of 

Bayard-Stuyvesant. — Messrs. Editors : — As a descendant of Gerardus Stuyvesant, 
I should like to ask whether there is not an error in the last number of the RECORD, 
Vol. VIII., p. 15, in regard to his marriage with Judith Bayard. His wife was certainly 
Judith Bayard, but this Judith was born in 16S5, and would have been six years older 
than Gerardus Stuyvesant. I rather imagine that the Samuel Bayard, fourth child of 
Balthazar Bayard, of whom the Record says there is "no further account," is the same 
who married, March 12, 1696, Margarita, daughter of Stephanus Van Cortlandt. Samuel 
Bayard was born June 14, 1672. and Margarita Van Cortlandt was baptized July 29. 1674. 
Their child, Judith Bayard, was baptized December 13, 1696, and would be more likely 
to have been the wife of Gerardus Stuyvesant, who was horn in 1691 (baptized October 25. 
169 1 ). than the aunt, who was eleven years older. Still this is surmise. Are there proofs 
that Judith Bayard, daughter of Balthazar, married Gerardus Stuyvesant, according to the 
entry referred to in the Record ? 

I should like to inquire who -was the wife of Abraham Schuyler, son of Abraham 
Schuyler and Geerfruy Ten Broeck, and grandson of David Pieterse Schuyler. Was she 
a Staats? and what was her father's name ? Can I anywhere find the genealogy of the 
Coeymans or Coejemans family ? Joanna Coejemans, who married Dr. John Neihon, of 
New Brunswick, N. J., was said to be a daughter of Andries Coeymans and Joanna (?) 
Staats, daughter of Dr. Samuel Staats. Can I learn other particulars in regard to the 
Coeymans. One sister, I believe, married a Gouverneirr. Knickerbocker. 

Answer. — The Samuel Bayard to whom our correspondent refers, who m. March 12, 
1696, Margarita, dau. of Stephanus Van Cortlandt. was not Balthazar's son, but the 
son of Lis brother, Nicholas Bayard, and Judith Verleth, and was bap. September 
5, 1669. He had ten children bap. in the Reformed Dutch Church of New York, 
of whom Judith, the eldest, was bap. December 13, 1696. She m. September iS, 
1719, Rip Van Dam, Jr., bap. October 7, 1694. son of Rip Van Dam and Sara Van der 
Spiegel. The proof that Judith, dau. of Balthazar Bayard, m. Gerardus Stuyvesant 
rests upon the evidence : 1st. That at the time of her marriage we have no account of 
any other person of marriageable age bearing her name. 2d. The chief witnesses or 
sponsors at the bap. of her children were her brother and sister, Augustus and Anna 
Maria (Bayard) Jay, her nephew. Gelyn Verplanck. and other near relatives. 3d. The 
statement of Mr. George Folsom in the " Collections of the N. Y. Hist. Society." second 
series, Vol. I., p. 455, who says in his account of the Stuyvesant family, there given, that 
Gerardus m. Judith, youngest dau. of Balthazar Bayard. 

Schuyler.— Abraham, son of Abraham Schuyler and Geertruy Ten Broeck, m. at 
Albany, September 7, 1732, Catharine Staats (her father's name we are unable to give , 

and had Christina, bap. June 20, 1733. ^ e perhaps had a second wife, Maria , 

.and by her a son, Hendrick, bap. February 8, 1738. See Pearson's " Genealogies of the 
First Settlers of Albany," p.< 99. 

Coeymans-Staats. — A brief genealogy of the Coeymans family is given in Pearson's 
" Genealogies of the First Settlers of Albany," p. 32. Andries Coeymans, son of Barent 
Pieterse Coeymans, of Albany, m. in New York, June 3. 1716, Geertruy Neagle (Nagel), 
widow of Peter Nagel. She was a dau. of Dr. Samuel Staats, who died in 171 5, and 
his wife, Johanna Rynders. She m. Peter Nagel May 25, 17 T 1, by whom she probably 
had no children. About 1726—7 Andries Coeymans and his wife Geertruy Staats removed 
to Raritan, N. J. They had bap. in the Ref. Dutch Church of New York, the fol- 
lowing named children, viz. : Johanna, bap. November 9, 171S ; Mayke (Mary or 
Maria), bap. March 23, 1720; Barent, bap. June 4. 1721 ; Samuel Staats, bap. January 
29, 1724, and Geertruy, bap. May II, 1726. Of the marriage connections of these 
children we have no account except that given by our correspondent, but shail be pleased 
to insert in the Record further authentic records concerning them. ed's. 

1S77.] Notes and Queries. gi 

Hooglaxd. — Elizabeth Hoogland m. Joris Coesart, 16th September. 1730 (X. Y. D. C. 
Records), and her sister Sarah m. Jacob Janeway fm. 1. 26th June, 1738). Can any 
reader of the Record give their parentage and ancestry? It is presumed they were 
children of Joris Hoogland, of Scaten Island, and great grandchildren of Cornells Dircksen 
(Hoogland,), who kept the first ferry between Brooklyn and New Amsterdam. 

I. J. G. 

Ans-dJtr. — Is it not more probable that the above were children of Johannes Hoogland 
and Jenneke Andriese, who had two daughters of that name bap. in the Dutch Church, at 
New York, as follows : Elizabeth, bap. November 20, 1706, and Sara. bap. August 8, 
1708. Joris, son of Dirck Cornelise, son of Cornells Dircksen Hoogland. of the Brooklyn 
ferry, bnd by wife Catharina Richards (?) a dau. Elizabeth, bap. in New York, November 
19, 1692. If she became the wife of Joris Coesart she must have been 38 years old at the 
time of her marriage. Ed's. 

Feake. — Tobias Feake, of Flushing, L. I., SchoutfiscaL or Sheriff under the Dutch 
Government, was the son of James Feake, of London, born in 1622. He married, 1644- 
1649, Annetje, the widow of Capt. Daniel Patrick, by whom he had one son. James 
Feake, and four'other children, whose names, however, are not entered in any record I 

have yet discovered. Tobias Feake married for his second wife Mary , a widow. 

Can any one inform me her family name, or that of her first husband ? also the names of 
the four children of the first wife ? j. j. l.

Correctiox. — Nerbery. — There are some errors in the account given in Vol. VI., 
p. 20, of the Record, of Sara, dau. of Johannes Nerbery and Agnietje Provoost. which 
should be corrected as follows : Sara Nerbery, bap. May 5, 1700; m. November 1,

Church at New York, the folio wing named children : 1. Lucas, bap. September 9. 1719; 
2. Angenietje, bap. February 14, 1722, and, 3. Rachel, bap. October 21, 1724. It is 
probable he was twice married, and that his second wife was Elizabeth, dau. of Rip Van 
Dam and Sara Vander Spiegel E. R. P. 

Q2 Notes o?i Books, [April, 

Varick. — In the account of Col. Richard Varick, Vol. VIII., p. 20, the word itn- 
married in line fourteen from the top should be struck out. Col. Varick married Li 
17S6, Maria Roosevelt, dau. of Isaac Roosevelt and Cornelia Hoffman, of New York. 
She died July 19, 1841, aged 77 years, 11 months, and 17 days, and was buried by his

none surviving them. E. R. P. 

Correction 7 . — In republishing, in our last number, the valuable article on " Long 
Island (N. V.) Families in Chester Co., Penna. ," contributed by Gilbert Cope, Esq., of 
West Chester, Pa., the blunder of incorrectly giving his Christian name as "George" 
instead of Gilbert was unaccountably repeated. Mr. Gilbert Cope is one of our most

Memoir of Johannes Schenk, the Progenitor of the Bushwick, L. I , Family of 
Schenck. By P. L. Schenck:, M.D. Flat bush, L. I., 1876. 
This book is described as "home-made," "printed in the compiler's sanctum on an 
amateur duodecimo press ; " but it need not avoid criticism. It contains many interest- 
ing sketches, historical records, and genealogical mementoes ; such as every member of 
the family must desire to preserve, and such as few other families can boast. The illus- 
trations strike us as particularly appropriate. They embrace the ancient arms of the family 
of Schenck in its various branches ; the engraving on the silver of the earliest emigrant 
to this country ; copies of seals used by him ; a photographic plate of the burying-ground, 
showing his monument yet well preserved ; facsimile of his signature, and the signatures 
of many others, and fair sketches of some of the homesteads. We might say much more, 
but it is needless. C. B. M. 

Papers of the New Haven Colony Historical Society, Vol. II. New Haven : 
Printed for the Society. 1877. 
The object of this Society is especially " to illustrate the local history of the towns in- 
cluded within the ancient New Haven Colony; " and it thus embraces a part of what is 
now the State of New York. The present volume gives the names of its officers and 
members, a copy of its constitution and by-laws, an address of the President, the Rev. 
Dr. Beardsley. and nine papers read before the Society which are particularly useful and 
interesting. They are upon " The Early History of Southold, by Rev. Epher Whit- 
aker ;" "The Invasion of New Haven by British Troops," in 1779; "The Poetry and 
Poets of Connecticut ; " " Respecting Whalley and Goffe ; " " Ancient Houses of New 
Haven;" sketches of "Stephen Goodyear," and "of the Life and Writings of John 
Davenport," with quite a gathering of " Medical History and Biography," by Dr. Henry 
Bronson ; embracing sketches of some 45 practisers of the healing art, historical, bio- 
graphical, and genealogical. The work can be safely commended for encouragement.

Bailey, Theodorus. — The Rear-Admiral died at Washington City, on Saturday morn- 
ing, 10th February, 1S77, and was buried in the Oak Hill Cemetery, with appropriate 
honors, on the 13th. The pall-bearers were Major-General Sherman, General Schenck, 
late Minister in England, Dr. Parker, Professor Joseph Henry, of the Smithsonian Insti- 
tute, Admiral David Porter, Vice- Admiral Rowan, Rear-Admiral Powell, and Commo- 
dore Sel fridge. 

He was a nephew of Gen. Theodorus Bailey, former member of Congress and Senator 
of the United States, being a son of Judge William Bailey of Plattsburg, and grand- 
son of Col. John Bailey of Poughkeepsie. Born in 1805, he was old enough to take a 
most vivid interest in the naval battle of Plattsburg, in which his subsequent friend, the 
surviving old Admiral of our Navy, Hiram Paulding, took an active part. Such was its 
effect upon him, a boy and very near to it, that he early declared his preference for a 
naval life, and had his studies and tastes cultivated in that direction. He was a midship- 
man in iSi8, a Lieutenant in 1827, a Commander in 1849, a Captain in 1S55, a Commo- 
dore in 1862, and a Rear-Admiral in 1S66. For a period of nearly sixty years he has 
had a full share of active employment, in all classes of vessels, in every species of official 
duty, and in connection with many most important events, and during the whole period he 
sedulously studied everything that belonged to his position and profession, at home and 
abroad, afloat and ashore, in books and in society, in nature and in art. Superior officers 
knew whom to call upon for any novel or difficult enterprise, and when called upon he was 
never known to be unready, uncertain, or inactive. In the early part of the Mexican 
war he was on the Pacific coast, and took the most prompt and effective measures, which 
resulted in acquiring first the seaports and afterwards the territory of California. And 
when the civil war was raging and the southern ports were placed under blockade, and 
the most strenuous efforts, foreign and domestic, were made to nullify the blockade, he 
was found to be the efficient commanding officer to render such efforts unavailing. 

He was next in rank and second in command under Admiral Farragut, in forcing the 
passage of the Mississippi up to New Orleans, and as such he had the actual and personal 
command of the leading division by which the greater part of the fighting was practically 
done. He removed from the larger frigate Colorado — drawing too much water — to the 
smaller and active Cayuga, and in her led and guided the attacking force past Forts Philip 
and Jackson, having the chain cut or broken, and obstructions removed, receiving and 
returning the fire with interest, and driving at once into the midst of the Confederate 
fleet, getting with the Cayuga so far in advance of the other Union vessels that it seemed 
as if he must of course be destroyed; but, capturing and disabling gunboats, dodging and 
diverting the heavy rams, he opened the way for the supporting vessels, and directed their 
movements into the most effectual and successful clearing of the river.for the whole Union 
fleet, while preventing the escape of any opponent ; making even a regiment of infantry, 
which was fixed on a point to harass or stop ascending vessels, surrender in a body to his 
vessel alone. To him. the city of New Orleans, deprived of all defence, surrendered, 
and he, under orders, and deeming rapidity of action important, dared to land with a 
single attendant, and to pass through a hostile crowd to the City Hall, to complete the 
surrender. It should be remembered that a large proportion of the Union vessels were 
wooden ; but well prepared and well managed, while a large proportion of the Confederate 
fleet consisted of iron-dads. In his official report, praising his officers and men, he said: 
" After we had passed the forts, it was a contest between iron hearts on wooden vessels, 

qa Obituaries. [April, 

and iron-clads with iron beaks; and the iron hearts won." He was relieved from com- 
mand and sent to Washington with the news, and many of us can remember its effect. He 
was received everywhere with congratulations and praise. And one of the most competent 
judges of his own class, panting for distinction, said: " We can never have anything that 
will eclipse or equal the passage of the forts at New Orleans." 

Since the war he has been much of the time in the Navy Board, at Washington ; advis- 
ing as best he could how a navy could be managed or kept alive, almost without ships or 
funds. His opinion, as to the impolicy of being without one, can be estimated. We may 
bury thoughts of this, and of his sufferings under increasing infirmities, as he has been 
buried out of sight, "now all his triumphs are passed." 

No more gallant or accomplished officer can be lost to us. The flags of the ships and 
navy yards have waved their last respects for him and others. His death has been 
lamented by his companions and countrymen, wherever the news has reached ; and it 
remains only to excite as far as we can an emulation of his good example, by recording 
what was most valuable. His family in our midst, and his numerous relatives scat! ere I 
over our State, deserve a genealogical sketch too long for present space. His mother 
was a dau. of Capt. Nathaniel Piatt and Phebe (Smith), his wife. His wife was al-o of 
the large and noted family of Piatt. His aunt Elizabeth, the wife of Chancellor Kent, 
has already been mentioned in our Record, and others ought to be. We must wait, 
•with patience, as he did. C. B. M. 

Bayley. — Mrs. Mary Nixon-Goldsborough Bayley died in Cambridge, Maryland, at 
the residence of her son-in-law, Francis J. Henry, Esq., January i, 1S76. aged S7 years. 

Mrs. Bayley was a descendant of the Nixon or Nillson family of the New Netherlands, 
and was closely connected with the Pryor, Van Dyke, Robinson, Stewart, Loockerman, 
and other families of Delaware. She was the first child of Hon. Charles and Elizabeth 
(Pryor-Loockerman) Nixon, of Dover, Del., where she was born, December 19, 17SS. 
She was baptized Sept. 13, 1789, by Rev. Dr. Magaw, of the Prot. Epis. Ch. ; con- 
firmed by the Rt. Rev. Wm. White, D.D., and continued an exemplary member of the 
P. E. Church until her death. She was educated at Dover. Married by Rev. Wm. 
Keene, January 9. 1810, to Robert Goldsborough, Esq., of Cambridge, Md., a man of 
wealth and high standing. He died June 22, 1S17, from injuries received during a severe 
storm. She was married again, by Rev. Jonathan Judd, November 1, 1825, to Gardner 
Bayley, A.M., then Principal of the Academy at Cambridge. He died March 1, 1S73. 

Mrs. B. was a woman of sincere piety, and of great loveliness of character, "possessing 
an uncommon intellect, and an education such as is rarely given to women." 

Her mother was the daughter of John and Elizabeth Pryor, of Dover, and the 2d wife 
and the widow of Hon. Vincent Loockerman, " a prominent Whig, during the Revolu- 
tion," and a member of the General Assembly of Delaware. He died August 26, 17S;. 

Her father, Hon. Charles Nixon, was also a member of the General Assembly, and for 
some years a delegate to and the treasurer of the Diocesan Convention of the Prot. Epis. 
Church in Del. He was the 3d son of Thomas Nixon, E>q., of Dover, who was the 
father-in daw of Hon. Nicholas Van Dyke, Sr., 2d President of the Commonwealth of 
Delaware, and Member of the Continental Congress. Mrs. Bayley left the following 
children by her 1st marriage— one son, Nicholas Loockerman Goldsborough, having died, 
coelebs, Nov. 5, 1S50 : 

Louisa Nixon Goldsborough, m. to Wm. E. Harrison, of Md. 

Sarah Verberry Goldsborough. m. to Jas. B. Steele, of Md.

Blake.— Homer K. F. Blake, the only son of Captain Homer C. Blake, U. S. N., 
and Mary Flanagan his wife, died February 20th, 1S77, in his 23d year. He was a 
young man of pleasing appearance and manners; of high character, and possessed of very 
superior mental gifts. He was one of the honor men of the Class of 1675 of Columbia 
College, and was in his second year at its law school at the time of his unexpected death. 
He received a marked compliment from President Barnard, when graduating, for an able 
essay on "Ambition, its True Aim." He was also a student in the law office of his uncle, 
John R. Flanagan, Esq., of the firm of Flanagan & Bright. 

Few young men in our city, all things considered, had a brighter future. Voung Blake 
was paternally descended from the well-known Connecticut families of Voughan, Crane, 
Brainard, and Chapman. His mother was the youngest child of the late James Flanagan, 
Counsellor at Law, by Elizabeth M. McKean, his wife, and granddaughter of Christopher 




Flanagan, one of the old Pearl St. merchants, a man of more than ordinary attainments, 
and who fought on the American side during the Revolutionary war. E. a. IL 

Johns. — The Right Reverend John John?, D.D., LL.D., Bishop of the Protestant 
Episcopal Church in Virginia, died at Malvern, his residence, near the Prot. Epis. Theo- 
logical Seminary, Fairfax Co., Va., on Thursday, April 6, 1876, in the 80th year of his 

This distinguished prelate, who was a near relative of the estimable lady whose death 
has just been noticed, was born in New Castle, Delaware, July 10, 1796. He was the 
2d son of the Hon. Kensey and Ann (Van Dyke) Johns. His father being an active and 
earnest member of the Protestant Episcopal Ch., the son naturally formed an early 
attachment to it, and was confirmed by Bishop White at the age of 18. In 18 12, at the 
age of 16, he entered Princeton College, N. J., and graduated in 1S16, in the same class 
with Bishop Mcllyaine, of Ohio; Gov. McDowell, of Va. ; Dr. John McLean, 
President of N. J. College; and Professor Charles Hodge, D.D., with whom he was 
on the most intimate terms for 64 years. Dr. Hodge, writing of his college course, 
says: "As a student Johns was remarkable for always doing his best. He was 
always thoroughly prepared for every recitation and exercise. Hence he was always 
first; first in college; first in the seminary; and so he came to stand in the first rank 
of preachers." Before his graduation he had turned his thoughts to the ministry of the 
Church, and after a course of study at the Theological Seminary at Princeton, he was 
admitted to the Holy Order of Deacons by Rt. Rev. Wm. White, D.D, at St. Peter's 
Church, Philadelphia, May 6, 1S19, and subsequently, about 1S20, by the same, to the 
Holy Order of Priests. His first parish was All Saints', Frederick, Maryland. Entering 
upon the charge of that parish, in 1S19, he remained there until called in 1S29 to the 
rectorship of Christ Church, Baltimore. Here he remained, his ministry blessed with 
great success, until he was elected to be the Assistant Bishop of Virginia, May 21, 1842. 
He was consecrated to that holy office in St. Paul's Church, Richmond, Oct. 13, 1S42. by 
Bishops Griswold, Meade, Ives, and Whittingham ; and succeeded to the office of Bishop 
of the Diocese on the death of Bishop Meade, in 1862. In 1S49, he was elected Presi- 
dent of William and Mary College, Va., which position he filled until 1S54, when he 
resigned the presidency of the college, and removed to his residence near Alexandria, 
where he died. 

He was a man of rare pulpit abilities, and extensive scholastic attainments, a wise 
executive officer, and a man full of the Holy Ghost. In 1834, he received the degree of 
S.T.D. from Columbia College, and from the University of the City of New York, and 
in the same year the degree of LL D. from William and Mary College. 

Bishop Johns was descended on the paternal side from Richard Johns, a distinguished 
preacher among the Friends, who was born at Bristol, Eng., in 1645, and who at man- 
hood emigrated to Maryland, and became a man of great influence beyond the circle of 
his own religious society. Richard Johns married Elizabeth Kensey, widow of Thomas 
Spencer. The Bishop was ot the 5th generation through Kensey-, Kensey?, Kensey 4 , his 
father above named, who was born in Md., June 14, 1759, studied law under Hon. 
George Read, signer of the Declaration of Independence, and after a practice of 12 
years was appointed Associate Judge of the Supreme Court, which place he filled until, 
in 179S, he succeeded Mr. Read as Chief-Justice, presiding in the Supreme Court of 
Del. for 30 years. On the death of Chancellor Ridgeiy, Judge Johns succeeded him to 
the chancellorship, which office he held until 1S32. He was appointed to the U. S. 
Senate in 1794, but was not admitted. He died Dec. 21, 1S4S, aged 87. 

Bishop Johns was descended on the maternal side from Thomas Janse Van Dyke, of 
the Netherlands, who emigrated from Amsterdam to Long Island, about 1640. He was 
of the 6th generation through Nicholas-, Nicholas 3 , Nicholas 4 , Anns. His maternal 
grandfather was Flon. Nicholas Van Dyke, a delegate from Delaware to the Continent- 1 
Congress, from 1777 to 1782 ; a signer of the Articles of Confederation, and also the 2d 
President of the Commonwealth of Delaware. Gov. Van D. was a lawyer of marked 
ability, unsurpassed by any one of his day in his profession ; and as a statesman he waa 
classed by LaFayette, who was warmly attached to him, as among the ablest in America. 
His first wife and the grandmother of Bishop Johns, was Elizabeth Nixon, the daughter 
of Thomas Nixon, Esq., a prominent merchant and planter near Dover, Del. 

Bishop Johns was the 2d of four brothers ; the first, IIo.\. Kensey Johns, Princeton, 
1810, admitted to the Bar, 1813 ; Rep. to U. S. Congress from Del., 1S27 to 1831 ; 
and Chancellor of the State, from 1S32 to the day of his .death, 1857; LL.D., Jefferson 
College, 1S46; the third, Rev. Henry Van Dyke Johns, D.D., Princeton, 1820, for

Bishop Johns was thrice married. His 1st wife was Miss Juliana Johnson, of Frederick,

Southgate, of Norfork, Va., who survives him. He left six children, three of whom arc- 
sons. John Johns, of Richmond, Va. ; Kensey Johns, of West River, Md., and Rev. 
Arthur Schaff Johns, of Eastville, Virginia. 

The death of Bishop Johns ; of Mrs. Mary Nixon Bayley (above) ; and of Lt. Nicholas 
Nixon Robinson, closes the record of a large generation of connections, remarkable for 
longevity and usefulness; contemporaneous with the early history of the United State-, 
and, without exception, persons of godly life. H. E. h, - { 

Strong. — The death of Dr. Henry T. Strong occurred in this city, on the 12th of 
December, ultimo, in the 32c! year of his age. Fie was a son of the late Judge Selah 
B. Strong, of St. Georges Manor, L. I., and Cornelia Udell his wife, and a younger 
brother of Thomas and Selah B. Strong, of this city. 

He was graduated at Williams College in 1S65, and received his degree of M.D. from 
the College of Physicians and Surgeons of New Vork City in 1S6S. He thereupon 
received an appointment as one of the assistant physicians at the Charity Hospital of 
New York City. After finishing his duties at that hospital, he continued his medical 
studies in the hospitals of Paris. Upon his return to New Vork, he devoted himself to 
the practice of his profession, and had already laid the foundation for a successful prac- 
tice, when his failing health compelled him to desist, as he then thought but for a time, 
from further work. His heart was in all he did, and he did it with his might. His kind- 
liness of disposition, his ready sympathy, his unselfishness, and his unfailing cheerfulness, 
were conspicuous traits. The Rev. Dr. Robinson said that he, and one other, were 
indeed coworkers with him in 'his efforts to establish the American Chapel in Paris. 
These traits endeared him to his late pastor, and although but a young man, caused his 
selection for the office of deacon in the Church of the Puritans, at Harlem. Fie was also 
an earnest Sundav-school teacher. 

Dr. Strong, October 31st, 1S72, married Mary Crosby, second daughter of William 
R. Renwick, Esq., by whom he leaves a son, aged three years. E. a. h. 

Wilkes, Charles. — Another Rear-Admiral from New York, having been born in this 
city, died at Washington, on Thursday, the Sth of February, 1S77, and was buried with 
honors and attendance appropriate to his station. Nearly of the same age as Admiral 
Bailey, he was a midshipman in 1S1S-19, a Lieutenant in 1S26, a Captain in 1S55, a 
Commodore in 1862, and a Rear-Admiral in 1S66. His distinction is chiefly in the 
literary line. He was given a command above his rank for the exploring expedition in 
the Southern Ocean, 1S3S-42, and prepared and superintended the publication of the 
Narrative of it in 5 vols. imp. 4to, and its abbreviation and synopsis, which were followed 
by 11 vols. 4to of Reports, and 5 vols. fol. of Illustrations. 

In the early part of the civil war he became noted for his arrest of the English mail 
steamer Trent, and for taking from her the treacherous envoys who were sent to engage 
foreign aid in our domestic struggle — a course towards an English ship which proved in- 
jurious to us — one which, when practised by the English before the war of 1S12, we had 
resented, and which they had not repeated, although too proud and wilful to relinquish it 
in form. It gave the unfriendly administration of the English government a color and 
pretence for injuring us and our commerce, and required great wisdom to prevent them 
from taking open sides for our opponents, as they wished to do, to secure Cotton and 
Dominion. But, if not so happy in merely naval exploits, or not so popular as some 
others, Admiral Wilkes has won a lasting renown in print, and there should be added to 
the expensive publications made by the nation his own " Western America," with maps, 
Svo, and his "Theory of the Winds," and others. His family also requires a more ex- 
tensive record than we are prepared to give it. 

Other Admirals have also, within a brief period, fallen before the great enemy. Rear- 
Admiral James Alden. a native of Maine, died at San Francisco en the 6th of February. 
He participated in the parage of the forts of the Mississippi, in command of the steam- 
ship Richmond. Rear-Admirals Goldsborough and Davis, of other States, have died 
since. Readers have nearly the same opportunity that we have to learn particulars.

Deritend, a chapelry in the parish of Aston, was a hamlet in the sub- 
urbs of Birmingham (1 mile S. E. by S.), and presently was absorbed by it. 
It lies on the boundary line between Warwick and Stafford counties. As- 
ton on the map is on the River Tame. 

Of this family, we have no details. It would be interesting to find that 
the wife was a sister or relative of Sir Thomas Wyatt, the poet, only son 
of Sir Henry. Sir Thomas was b. at Alhngton Castle, in Kent Co., in 
1503, and d. in 1541. About the same age as John Rogers, he was one 
of those educated at Cambridge (St. John's College), and transferred like 
John Rogers to Oxford. He travelled, in early life, with Henry Howard, 
Earl of Surrey. He married Elizabeth, dau. of Thomas Brooke, 6th Baron 
Cobham. There are full accounts of his offices, embassies, and influence 
under Henry 8 th . He was twice under accusation ; once, upon the fall 
of Anne Boleyn, and again, judicially, relative to his conduct abroad. 
His only son and heir was executed, in Queen Mary's reign, for opposing 
her, and treated as leader of a rebellion against her, which many Protes- 
tants probably favored, and many of the sufferers in which were rewarded 
by Queen Elizabeth. 

We have to consider the family record and life of the Proto-niartyr. 
His relatives had been deeply involved in the terrible struggles of the 
civil wars and in the contentions which ensued. So far as known and 
distinguished they were Yorkists. It was common for families to divide 

pS Biographical Notiee of John Rogers, the Martyr. ^Jtily, 

(especially where there was property which would be the prize of the suc- 
cessful), and for one division to be more fierce and inveterate against the 
other than against strangers. 

(C. i). John Rogers, the Rev., son of John (D. 2.) called a native 
of Birmingham, b. about 1500, 1505. or 1509, was burned at Smkhfield, 
on 4th February, 1555. 

About 1536, at Antwerp, he married Adryan Pratt, or De Wevden, 
then of Brabant, and he had issue, three daughters and eight sons. 

Susan (believed b. in Brabant) mar. John Short, a merchant of London. 
" Elizabeth (do.) mar. James Proctor, of Salisbury. 
" Hester (do.) mar. Henry" Ball, physician.

- (B. 2). John, b. about 154c — 41, Proctor, D.C.L. and M.P. 

(B. 3). Ambrose, living in 1591, and then called by Daniel, his youngest 

(B. 4). Samuel, of whom no trace is found. 

(B, 5). Philip, a merchant, active in 1576, going to Ireland for a 
debt, etc.

The long and furious struggles between the houses of York and Lancas- 
ter, being appeals to violence and fraud, for the possession of power 
and wealth, left the English people ignorant and irreligious, brutal and 
cruel, violent and fraudulent. 

In T -1 Q 5 ; the last Yorkist king, Richard III., was defeated and slain. 
Henry Tudor, Lancastrian, became king ; promising to marry a Yorkist 
princess, and to stop the dynastic struggle ; and during his reign, great 
pains were taken by religious and patriotic men to reform the bad habits 
of the people, and to teach an abhorrence " of the blood-thirsty and de- 
ceitful man," the patron of violence and fraud. 

The pursuits of education were revived, and ancient learning restored. 
The colleges were crowded, as well as the monasteries, and great political 
importance was attached to them. The chiefs were politicians, and nearly 
all the students became such. Even the pulpits were prizes for political 
struggles. Young Rogers was educated in Pembroke Hall, at Cambridge, 
and was called a " severe student." He resided long at Cambridge. In 
1525. he became B. A. 

Tne mother of King Henry VII., Margaret, Countess of Richmond and 
Derby, Lancastrian, had favored Cambridge LTniversity, by her will. So 
had Cardinal Morton, Lancastrian, by every means in his power. 
Bishop Fisher, her executor, building a new college, was a Professor there, 
and became Chancellor of that university for life. Erasmus was also a 
Professor there. The seeds of reformation were sown, and grew. Bilney, 
Hugh Latimer and others were students ; Luther had friends there. 

But Wolsey, a student of Oxford, and interested .in building a col- 
lege there, succeeding Morton as Cardinal, held highest offices in Church 
and State, under pope and king, and favoring Oxford, declared war 
against Luther, and threatened to injure Cambridge by building up another 
institution in its rear, at Ipswich. That taking up too much time for his 
purposes, he obtained an order by which students and graduates were re- 
moved from Cambridge to Oxford ; and for college offices the salaries 

i877-] Biographical Notice of John Rogers, the Martyr. gg 

were made " more considerable " at Oxford, and the way to preferment 
more ready. Under the encouragement of his favor, John Rogers, as well 
as Thomas Wyatt, Sumner, Betts, Frith, Lawney, and others, were chosen 
in 1525 for the Cardinal's College at Oxford (now called Christ's College), 
and John Rogers was made a junior Canon, ruler of a class, under pay. • 
He soon after took orders, and became a priest in the English Church, as 
then organized. 

A large proportion of the students who were transferred irregularly, 
or enticed from Cambridge to Oxford, became involved in contentions 
and difficulties ; or following Wolsey, fell with him. 

About 1527, T. Cromwell, having been at Antwerp, was Wolsey' s agent in 
England, to prffss money out of monasteries for his new colleges. In 1529. 
S. Vaughan was Cromwell's correspondent at Antwerp, and Sir T. More 
succeeded Wolsey as Chancellor. In 1530, Wolsey fell. In that year, 
the king in council ordered an approved English translation of the Bible, 
under the direction of the bishops, and forbid all irregular publications, i.e.. 
all others. The order was probably put in form by Sir T. More. There was 
a sharp struggle for the business of translating and printing; we have no 
precise account of the position of Rogers, in regard to this. But printing 
having been vigorously started in England, and the Bible, as well as many 
other books, being called for, in English, there was strife among printers and 
translators, to make their fortunes in this new business, and competition 
among the rising scholars, the ambitious young men, to study languages, 
and excel others in reading, translating, and using the larger knowledge. 
There were few competent teachers in England, and the example had been 
set by Surrey, Wyatt, Sir T. More, Sir T. Smith, Tyndal, and others, of going 
abroad to c0r4p.le.te inch education, or improve their knowledge. Without 
knowing the date, we learn that, about this period, Rogers was chosen 
Chaplain for the company of merchant adventurers (composed of English- 
men trading in Holland), and went accordingly to reside and study at Ant- 

In April, 1532, T. Cromwell, the devoted follower and imitator of Wol- 
sey (who had also been abroad), received high office from the king, and in 
May Sir T. More resigned and retired. A curious letter is preserved, 
written by Mile's Coverdale reminding Cromwell of the godly conversation 
had in the house of Master More. 

On 26 th Dec, in that year, 1532, " Dom. John Rogers, priest," received 
the living of the church of Trinity the less in London, vacant by the death 
of Thomas Lane. It was presented to him by the prior and convent of 
St. Mary Overy of Southwark, a small monastery which had lost its inde- 
pendence, by the proceedings of the king' and parliament against the 
smaller monasteries. Probably he held the benefice in 1533, when the 
king was declared divorced from his first queen by Archb p . Cranmer ; and 
when Anne Boleyn became queen. His successor John Darreil was ap- 
pointed on 24 th October, 1534, and was active against the monasteries. 
At this date Sir William Courtenay the Great, or wealthy, was living, liis 
son and heir, George, died before him. John, one of the gr. sons, was of 
." Autery St. Mary," and named one of his sons, Roger. And about this 
date, 1533 or 34, Lawrence Courtenay, a servant of T. Cromwell was com- 
plained of to him by Lady Lisle ; and was doubtless of the same Courtenay 
family, a son of Richard ; who left a son Francis and descendants in Corn- 
wall. (6 Coll. Peer.) 

IOO Biographical Notice of John Rogers, the Martyr. [J l!1 >'» 

And at this period, T. Cromwell, getting into power and imitating Wol- 
sey, favoring the king's supremacy with himself vicegerent, had his finger in 
almost every thing. He sold public offices, favor, influence and powei (as 
appears by his correspondence) beyond the example of others, while he 
and his associates purchased for a song many valuable buildings and farms 
lately used as monasteries. Cambridge University secured his favor, and 
perhaps was saved from destruction, by making him Chancellor, though 
unfit for the office. Plis correspondence at Antwerp has not been fully ex- 
posed. The letter preserved, signed by Queen Anne Bolevn, while in favor, 
is curious. It states that Richard Herman, merchant and citizen of Ant- 
werp in Brabant, was in the Cardinal (Wolsey's) time expelled from his 
freedom and fellowship in the English house there for helping to set forth 
the new testament in English; and she asked his restoration, (i State 
Trials, 427.) 

Rogers went to Antwerp, but when or by whose favor he went, or how 
long he remained, is not stated. It may have been either before or after he 
held the Rectory of Trinity Church in London, or even while he held it. It 
was more common then than afterwards for one to hold the official place of 
Rector, and for another to perforin its laborious duties. The serious labor 
in many offices of church and state was performed by Deputies. It has 
been asserted that he assisted Tyndal in translating ; whose translations 
were printed at Hamburg in 1532, and who was executed abroad in 1534. 
But we have seen no precise authority for this assertion. It seems more 
probable that Rogers was a successor of Tyndal, and favored by T. Crom- 
well, the antagonist of Bishop Fisher and Sir T. More, both superseded in 
1532 and executed in 1535. The letter of Queen Anne above mentioned, 
seems like him. She was executed in 1536, and several of the connections 
of Rogers, it seems, were involved in her fall. He doubtless went abroad, 
to reside, soon after, if not before. There is no clear evidence that Rogers 
took any part in the strong measures of Cromwell, as vicegerent, except 
only on the marriage question. Cromwell presided over the convocation 
of clergy when it was voted that a priest might lawfully have one wife. 

The Seymour party soon succeeded the Boleyns. Rogers's family and 
T. Cromwell's (whose son married a Seymour) were soon on good terms 
with the Seymours. 

Rogers was married at Antwerp, perhaps in 1536, and visited England 
with his wife in 1537. It is not certain that his wife's parents belonged 
there. "Pratt" was an old English name and many Englishmen were 

About 1537 the large Bible in English, partly translated or corrected by 
Rogers, having been set up abroad, and licensed to be printed in France, 
was published in England, with Thomas Matthew named as translator. 
Rogers contributed over his initials "J. R." an exhortation to the study of 
the Bible gathered out of it. There was no other mark of his, on the 
book. He probably foresaw that a violent opposition would be made to 
its publication in England. Similar attempts had before met with extreme 
violence, and he could anticipate the like. He went to Wittenburg to re- 
side and study in peace. He became a proficient in the German language, 
and (doubtless after he was a proficient in the language) " took charge of a 
congregation there, to which he ministered for many years." But of this 
period, we have little information beyond the mere birth of children. More 
details ought to appear. 

i877-] Biographical Notice of John Rogers, the Martyr. ioi 

In 1540 T. Cromwell fell. Neither party in power could refrain from 
extreme acts of cruelty. He and others were executed. In 1544 a rela- 
tive and secretary of Bishop Gardiner was executed for opposing Cranmer 
and for denying the king's supremacy. In 1546 Anne Askew was cruelly 
burnt. Surrey was improperly executed to favor Seymour. . 

On 27 th Jariy, 1547, k. Hy. 8 th died and Edward 6 th became king. He 
was a mere boy, 10 years old. His uncle, Edward Seymour, became Pro- 
tector, and acting monarch. This change made it appear safe for Rogers 
to return to England. 

As early as the middle of 1548, he had returned with his wife and 8 
children. Coverdale & Hooper, who had been abroad, also returned. 

On the 15 th of May, in that year, the Emperor's Interim was publi-hed at 
the Diet of Augsburg, and early in June, Melancthon printed a review of it. 

On the first of August this was republished in England, entitled "A 
"waving and considering of the Interim, by the honorworthy and highly 
" learned Philip Melancthon, translated into Englyshe by John Rogers," 
dated 1548. The address to the reader was dated at London, in Edward 
Whitchurch's house, by " John Rogers," i st August, 1548. [Grafton & 
Whitchurch had been the publishers of the Bible.] It states that the book 
of Melancthon was printed and put forth in Dutchland about the beginning 
of June, 1548. [Its recent publication by Mr. Chester is a valuable con- 
tribution to history.] Between 1548 & 1551, Gardiner, Bishop of Win- 
chester, declined obedience not only to Cranmer, but to the Protector Sey- 
mour. He had a sharp correspondence with the Protector, and was pres- 
ently deprived of his bishopric and imprisoned. [1. State Trials, 551-631.] 

In October, 1549, Bonner, Bishop of London, was tried, condemned, 
deprived of omce, and imprisoned, Cranmer being his chief judge. Hooper 
and Wm. Latimer were his formal accusers ; Gilbert Bourne acted as his 
friend and chaplain, and Richard Rogers, apparently of Gloucester, was 
one of the learned men in attendance. Ridley became bishop of London 
in place of Bonner. He was previously bishop of Rochester. He had 
been a student with Rogers in Pembroke Hall, at Cambridge. He was a 
little older than Rogers in college rank; in 1522 B. A. ; in 1525 M. A. 
He had been sent abroad until 1529, to complete his education. He then 
returned to the University, denied the pope's supremacy, filled various 
stations, and in 1540 was master of Pembroke Hall. 

Great fierceness, brutality and cruelty prevailed in these politico re- 
ligious contentions, and in 1550 Joan, of Kent, was burned at the -.take. 
It has been alleged that M r - Rogers, then in office or influence, as Lecturer, 
was applied to in her favor, and declined to interfere. It may be true, but 
Rogers may have been simply a preacher ; or if a Lecturer at St. Paul's, 
acting for some other incumbent of that official position, and declining to 
act politically, or offensively, and uselessly. 

On 10 th May, 1550, Rogers was presented to the Rectory of St. Mar- 
garet's Church, in Eriday street, and to the vicarage of St. Sepulchre, in 
London, both vacant by the decease of prior incumbents, and the latter 
commanding a good salary. He was in favor. 

In October, Seymour, the Protector, was overthrown by Dudley and 
others, and was soon arrested and imprisoned. 

On 24 th August, 155 1, Bishop Ridley appointed Rogers Prebendary of 
St. Paul's, to fill a vacancy by death, and Rogers, after this, or by this 
(unless there is some mistake of date), was chosen Divinity reader. 

102 Biographical Notice of John Rogers, the Martyr. [July, 

A Prebendary rec d ^40 a year as a salary. The old officers were not 
favored by Cranmer, nor by the Reformers, and were called lazy and use- 
less. It is quite probable that Rogers performed the duties before the 
date of this appointment. On 10 th Sept. he resigned the Rectory of St. 
Margaret's ; but he probably retained the vicarage of St. Sepulchre. He 
was no idler. 

On 2 2 d January, 1552, Seymour, Duke of Somerset, after a pretended 
trial by his greedy opponents, for no legal crime, unless a misdemeanor, 
having been adjudged guilty of a felony, was executed. He and the rest 
were guilty of taking part as judges in several harsh judgments and cruel 
executions ; but they were not at the time accused or condemned for any 
of these. Dudley became chief under the boy-king, using his name and 

When Rogers was promoted to a prebend by Bishop Ridley, the latter 
also promoted Grindall and John Bradford to prebends. 

On 18 th Nov., 1552, the bishop writing about the promotions "and 
" what manner of men they be," " unto whom he gave them" (referring 
to Grindall, Bradford and Rogers), he called them " men, known to be so 
" necessary to be abroad in the commonwealth, that he could keep none 
"of them with him in his house." 

In June, 1553, a presentation was signed by the young king, addressed 
to the bishop of London, to admit John Rogers within the Cathedral 
church of St. Paul, in London, in some capacity not stated. Perhaps it 
was a formal paper, before delayed and still imperfect, by reason of the 
overthrow of Seymour and the convulsions of office. 

In 1.552, cm March 51 st , a bill was read the first time in the House of 
Peers, on April 9 th it was passed by the Commons, and on April 15 th 
signed by the king, upon the petition of John Rogers, Edmund Allen, 
John A [ad well, & James Bylney, all preachers, stating that while pursuing 
their studies beyond sea, they had married women born in those parts, by 
whom they had in lawful matrimony divers children then living, who in- 
tended to become British subjects ; and enacting that their wives and 
children be reputed and legally recognized as denizens. In the House of 
Peers there voted against this [Edward Stanley, 13 th ], Earl of Derby, 
[Charles 7 th j baron Stourton (soon after executed), [Thomas, 2 d ] baron 
Sands, [William 2 d ] baron Windsor, and [Thomas, 3 d ] baron Burgh. These 
seem to have been all opponents of Dudley. 

In 1553 a remarkable series of events occurred. 
June 21 st . K. Edw d . 6 th was ill. Those around him had him sign a will, 
in which he treated his older half sisters Mary and Elizabeth as 
not entitled to succeed him, and undertook to dispose of the 
crown to a descendant of his father's sister, Lady Jane Grey, 
who had married Henry Dudley. Sir Edward Rogers of Can- 
nington, was one of the witnesses to this will. In less than a 
fortnight, on 
July 6 th . K. Edw d . 6 th died, set. 16. On the next day, 
" 7 th . Lady Jane was proclaimed at London, as Queen of England, 
" 9 th . Sunday — Bishop Ridley preached in her favor at St. Paul's 

" 16 th . The next Sunday, John Rogers preached at the same place ; it 
v is said not politically; but probably acknowledging and pray- 

ing for her as Queen — 

1877J Biographical Notice of John Rogers, the Martyr. 103 

July 17 th . The next day. Queen Mary was proclaimed at London. Her op- 
ponents were soon captured or dispersed. On the 
" 26 th . Bishop Ridley was committed to prison, charged with treason. 
Aug*. 3 d . Queen Mary entered London in state : and on the 
" 6 th . Rogers again preached at St. Paul's cross ; and did not please. 
" 13 th . The next Sunday, Gilbert Bourne, Bonner's old chaplain, was 
appointed to preach at St. Paul's crosf, of course in praise of 
Mary. He was disturbed and driven out by rioters. Rogers 
and Bradford were present and protected him by their persons 
from injury, retiring with him ; but had to bear some of the 
blame, because the rioters appeared friendly to them. Three 
days afterwards, on 
Aug 1 . 16 th . Rogers "alias Matthew," was summoned before the privy 
council and ordered to keep himself in prison in his house at 
Paul's [without conference with any other than his household,] 
until further orders. 
Bradford was arraigned the same day and committed to prison. Of 
Queen Mary's political opponents, Dudley, Lady Jane, her husband and 
father, and a few of their active supporters were condemned and executed. 
Not many were executed for treason, but the religious chiefs were not par- 
doned. They must turn their coats or stop preaching to escape, and many 
would not do so. Rogers afterwards said, " I was almost half a year in my 
house;" "and spake with no man." During this period, he was deprived 
of any pay, or proceeds of his places. On the 10 th of October another was 
appointed to his prebend. Pie must support himself and do nothing. This 
was severe discipline. In Dec 1 ., about Christmas, his wife (being near con- 
finement) with S fernale friends paid a formal Visit to Bishop Gardiner 
[who was in power and favor, being then Lord Chancellor, as well as chief 
manager of religious offices], at his house at Richmond to intercede with 
him for her husband's discharge, and perhaps to show him how many inno- 
cents must suffer, as well as her husband. Their mission proved fruitless, 
and perhaps was injurious. Gardiner, — the politician, — had suffered much 
by degradation and imprisonment, and was more full of revenge than of 
charity. The civil wars had before developed this spirit, and seemed not 
yet ended. In Jan y , 1554, the attempt of Thomas Wyatt to overpower 
Queen Mary's government, occurred. Wyatt was captured and the move- 
ment soon suppressed. Sir Edward Rogers of Cannington was charged 
with favoring this movement. It had as a new basis of opposition to Mary, 
the Protestant feeling of insecurity and dread, from her proposed marriage 
with Philip of Spain — papist. Elizabeth, the sister of Mary, was arrested 
and would doubtless have been set up, if Mary had been pushed aside, as 
Lady Jane Grey had failed. But the peers, such as the Duke of Norfolk 
and Howard of Effingham, his brother, took a different view, viz. that of 
limiting the monarchy, having a nominal sovereign, and not the old plan, of 
upsetting a dynasty to secure rights or favor. If Elizabeth did not at the 
time take any part in it, she afterwards favored and rewarded some of the 
sufferers — her friends. 

On the 27 th Jan y , John Rogers, having been near six months in the 
house, on parole, was taken from it, and confined in New Gate prison. 
There is no evidence that he was ever charged with acting as a politician. 
If Wyatt was his near relative we should not wonder at this confinement. 
Perhaps it was enough that he was a relative of Sir Edward Rogers.

In Feb y . Bonner, again bishop of London, instead of Ridley, undertook to 
deprive all married priests in his diocese of their livings ; commanding 
them to bring their wives before him within a fortnight, to be divorced. 
Rogers probably took no notice of this. He was in prison. 

Many of the chiefs caught in the Wyatt rebellion were tried and convicted 
of treason. About 60 were executed. Philip of Spain, coming over, as 
husband of Mary, asked as a popular thing, the pardon of a selected few. 
Sir Geo. Harpur, who had married a Clifford, is named as one, and Courte- 
nay another. 

On iS 111 May, Rogers joined with Bradford, Ferrar and other imprisoned 
clergymen, and with Miles Coverdale, in a formal statement of their belief — 
Protestant in character. It was a refusal to conform to papacy, and perhaps 
intended to be popular, looking to the final overthrow of the foreign re- 
ligion. Prosecutions and subjugation followed and were probably expected. 
Coverdale, with his wife, was permitted to go to Denmark, where she had a 
married sister. Grindal escaped to Strasburgh, and was afterwards a bishop 
under Queen Elizabeth. On 2 2 d Jan y , 1555, Rogers and ten others were 
brought from New Gate prison and examined before a council, over which 
Gardiner presided. He was briefly examined, was found firmly resolved in 
his course and was sent back to prison. Jan y 28 th Cardinal Pole, as pope's 
legate, issued his commission to Gardiner and others for judicial proceedings 
against all who were obnoxious to the new laws against heresy, and to the 
changed definition of what was heresy. " The trial moves rapidly on, 
when the judge has determined his sentence beforehand." The Com rs . 
met the same afternoon at the church of St. Mary Overy (now St. Saviours), 
near the residence of Gardiner, and early enough for the examination of 
Rogers and two others, that day. It was a large council, with 12 other 
bishops. and several peers and members of the privy council. After 
his hearing, Rogers was ordered to attend or be brought in, the next morn- 
ing ; and on Jan y 29 th he was formally condemned as "an obstinate and 
stubborn heretic," and delivered over to the secular power; committed to 
the Sheriffs of London [ — this is the formal entry of record — ] who took 
him away with them, and understood they were bound to burn him. But, 
although that was the fashion, and, no judge by habeas corpus ever inter- 
fered, it may be hard to find legal warrant for it. He was first removed to 
the Clink prison in Southwark, and detained until evening. Arrangements 
were made to prevent any popular expression of dissent, or concourse. 
By order, the lights in the streets through which he with his condemned 
companions, were to pass, were extinguished. Protestants took the hint. 
With a numerous guard of armed officials, the prisoners were taken from 
the Clink, led through the bishop's house, and through the church yard into 
the open street, and then across London bridge towards New Gate. The 
darkened streets were found lined with men and women who — as the pro- 
cession approached — held up candles and lighted them, and who cheered 
the prisoners, and made prayers and thanksgiving — in their favor. The con- 
finement of Rogers for t\vc days was then rigid and solitary. Bradford and 
others wrote numerous letters and sent messages to friends, after their con- 
demnation. But nothing of the kind was allowed to Rogers. He wrote 
in prison a hurried account of his formal examinations, adding in part, 
what he would have said if permitted, but ending this abruptly for lack of 
time and opportunity. He hid the writing in his cell, telling one of his 
family, on his way to execution, where to find it, 

i877-] Biographical Notice of John Rogers, the Martyr. 105 

John Day was also a prisoner, and had a short conversation with him 
(reported by Fox), Rogers saying, "Thou shalt live to see the alteration of 
" this Religion and the Gospel to be freely preached again ! " &c. This, as 
his object, forms his noblest defence. 

On the day of execution, or the day before, he was formally degraded 
from his priesthood by Bishop Bonner, in the chapel of New Gate prison, 
a strong guaul attending. The ordinary course of church discipline might 
regularly have this result, and it is curious that this is all that the church 
records show. The " secular power," not allowed a voice upon a question 
ofixeresy 01 theology, must take the responsibility of the rest. 

The Sheriffs were David Woodroffe and William Chester. If they had 
a writ "de heretico comburendo," it is not published and we know not by 
whom allowed, or issued. 

1555. Feb y 4. Six days after his condemnation, on a Monday morning, 
he was taken under guard to Smithfield and publickly burned at the stake, 
a great crowd attending and exhibiting their feelings of sympathy and com- 
misseration. Sir Robert Rochester and Sir Richard Southwell were offi- 
cial witnesses — prob. from the privy council. Doubtless the proceeding 
was there sanctioned. It is. reported that a pardon was repeatedly offered 
if he would recant ; and that at the very last, when engaged in prayer, a 
box containing it was presented but repelled. This is not well authenti- 
cated, and it appears from the course strictly pursued against others, that 
if he recanted, his wife must be repudiated, and his children be called ille- 
gitimate. None but a man reckless of honor and truth could under such 
circumstances recant. 

The French Ambassador (Noailles) a zealous papist, giving the political 
construction intended, wrote to his sovereign his official despatch, in these 
remarkable words, as translated : il This day was performed the confirma- 
tion of the alliance between the pope and this kingdom, by a public and 
solemn sacrifice of a preaching doctor, named Rogers, who has been 
burned alive for being a Lutheran. But he died persisting in his opinion. 
At this conduct the greatest part of the people took such pleasure that 
they were not afraid to make him many exclamations to strengthen his 
courage. Even his children assisted at it, comforting him in such a man- 
ner that it seemed as if he had been led to a wedding." (Ambassades, 
vol. 4.) 

The modern author says, "All writers, both Protestant and Romish, 
united in bearing testimony to the wonderful patience and constancy, nay 
even cheerfulness, with which he met his fearful doom." 

His wife and son Daniel, retiring from the scene, visited and examined 
the apartment he had occupied in New Gate to gather any personal effects 
or memorials, and were about leaving, when the son espied in a corner, 
the black envelope, which contained the last writings of the victim. Fox, 
the martyrologist, was furnished with a copy ; but it was mutilated In 
publication. In 1S61, three hundred years afterwards, we have the first 
correct copy of the writings, and the first fair account of the man and of 
his family, written by an American genealogist, perhaps searching particu- 
larly for the history and family of one of the Sheriffs who were nominally 
his executioners. The careful reader of history finds many instances where 
a great political party, or the supporters of a dynasty long succeed in hiding 
the history, or blackening the character of an opponent. It is not neces- 
sary, nor indeed fair, to review or dwell upon the particular opinions, or 

Io6 Biographical Notice of John Rogers, the Martyr. [July, 

forms of religion which he defended or advocated. It might please some, 
but would set others in opposition. Supposing him an honest man, he 
acquired or formed, and expressed opinions froin the information and 
evidence which fell within his limited view, as every honest man must. 
But, by this rule opinions may be as various and contradictory as the 
scenes of this earth are variant and discrepant, when viewed in all the 
shades of light and darkness in different latitudes and by different eyes. 
Our revolving globe, lighted and darkened so fitfully, exposes opinions 
to this human frailty. Who can be judged by them ? or what human 
judge is fit to decide upon them ? If any one is so self-conceited, or so 
easily flattered, as to believe himself infallible, or to act upon that assump- 
tion, it may be a happy thing to be beyond his reach. The true point is 
to show the folly, the cruelty, and the evil course of attempting to force a 
man to hold, express and advocate opinions, which he abhors. Those 
w^ho are studying religious questions may properly read the views of 
Rogers ; but they are quite antiquated. One class defends the right of 
the governing power to prescribe forms, or rules of order and propriety. 
There may be some force in their reasoning. The state should preserve 
the peace, and to do so, check fraud and violence, and every family or 
society must have some rules of order. We wiil not attempt a more 
exact definition. Dr. Heyhn* states that John Rogers refused to wear the 
prescribed habits, unless with something to distinguish him from the papists 
of his day. Some candidates were doubtless anxious to show their devo- 
tion in a form favored at court. Others in office, not anxious to attract 
attention. Nothing of this appears in the written account left by Rogers. 
If he objected to ''prescribed habits," we cannot deem it a ''grievous 
fault," however ••grievously he suffered for it." 

On 8 th Feb y , four days after the death of Rogers, Bradford wrote to 
Cranmer, Ridley, and Latimer, all surviving him and in prison, rejoicing 
that their '' dear brother" (Rogers) " had broken the ice valiantly." This 
was an expression appropriate to the climate and the season ; although, in 
Palestine, the Jordan was not frozen, and he encountered fire and not ice. 
He set the example of bold and unflinching defiance of ail the terrors of 
his opponents. The prisoners communicated with each other. All of 
these wrote and acted in this tone, and soon suffered bravely, after his 
example ; as did many others. John Leaf, aged 19, a London apprentice, 
said to have been at school under Rogers, and maintaining his views, was 
bold in his avowals, and was arrested, imprisoned and presently tried and 
condemned, for heresy ; and on 

July i st , Bradford and Leaf were burned, together, at the stake, at Smith- 
field. They may both be deemed personal friends and disciples of Rogers. 
If the priest must be burnt, what excuse was there for burning the appren- 
tice ? Their course was a proof that the disciples of a religious chief would 
imitate him in defying the terrors of death and degradation, just as the true 
soldier will follow the desperate example of a brave leader. And their 
execution was doubtless designed to prove that no sentiment of chivalry. 
clemency, or honor, would check the remorseless determination of the 
cruel victors wielding the sword of state and proclaiming — we victis .' 
The cowardly revenge of the conceited victor in wrangling, is sometimes 
more violent and cruel than the heated antagonist on the field of battle. 

The modern biographer of Rogers (Mr. Chester) says that "of his 
** devoted wife, we never hear again, after her visit to his prison abode, which 

i877-] Biographical Notice of John Rogers ', the Martyr. 107 

" was probably on the day of his death ; (n)or of any of his children, until they 
"arrived at manhood. Mr. Anderson" — (meaning the Rev J . Christopher, 
author of Annals of the English Bible) "says that they all returned together, 
"at once to Germany." The biographer, at this late date, by mere argu- 
ment casts some doubt upon this report, which seems unnecessary, and 
the argument in part inaccurate. The doubt is not based "upon a full view 
of the facts and circumstances. Many other Protestants left England. 
Charity had not entirely escaped the hearts of all, nor were all houses or 
purses closed. Funds were contributed for emigrants by the hundred. 
Some 700 at least fled. Two sons of Rogers were well educated and after- 
wards promoted. Daniel, it appears, went back to Brabant, after the 
execution. It may be fairly inferred that his mother and the younger 
children were taken care of, and lhat they all went back to Brabant where 
they were known, and doubtless had friends, and could remain in safety 
during Mary's reign. Cannot her relatives be traced? One heavy blow 
at her and her children was the course taken by the church authorities, 
declaring her marriage invalid and her children illegitimate. The courtiers 
made this the fashionable and presently the general view; and afterwards it 
took a long time to get this absurd notion out of the heads of the religious 
and superstitious in England. It was such a public and official slander 
sustained by legal authorities and bv the opinions of the great and power- 
ful as produced a deep and lasting degradation of the victims. Descend- 
ants, to be fairly received in mixed society, concealed-their origin, and the 
rich relatives who published fashionable pedigrees, made no mention of 

The names of the children of John Rogers are discovered by the papers 
of his eldest son and by pedigrees made up some 70 years after his death 
by his grand-children, sons of his two eldest sons. They are too late for 
fullness and accuracy. The children named by Daniel, the eldest son, 
may be deemed correctly named. But the younger have not been found 
named by him, nor are their pedigrees given. Young children going into 
Germany would have their names varied by attempted translations to 
another language or by foreign pronunciation ; and some might be varied 
at baptism, or on confirmation by a bishop in England when they returned. 
Such a power in a bishop' was sometimes claimed. In 1563, only eight 
years after the death of Rogers such prominent men as Sir W ,n . Cecil and 
Sir Ambrose Cave, members of Queen Elizabeth's privy council, wrote to 
the bishop of Peterborough, suggesting a particular change by him ar.d 
were answered, " I may not change usual or common names, but oniy 
strange and not common." (Ellis's Letters, Ser. 3, vol. 3, p. 351. Cam- 
den's Remains, Ed. of 1674, p. 66.) 

The property of the children, if any, has not been traced. The con- 
viction for heresy probably did not forfeit property. We hear of no will. 
Land would go to the eldest son as heir at law. He would be under some 
duty to protect his brothers and sisters if they required protection. There 
is room for elucidation on several points. The topic may be further pur-

16. Jacob Hendrickszen Kip 3 (4), born in Amsterdam May 16, 1631. 
In August (?), 1647, he gave to Harman Hendricksen Droogh, his uncle, a 
power of attorney to receive money due him from the West India Company 
at Amsterdam. The same year he was a clerk in the provincial Secretary's 
office at New Amsterdam, and as early as Dec, 1649, was acting clerk in 
Director Stuyvesant's Council.* He was appointed, Jan. 27, 1653, tne 
first Secretary of the Court of Burgomasters and Schepens of New Amster- 
dam. Upon his resignation of that office June 12, 1657, he engaged in 
Brewing, combining with this business that of a general trader or store- 
keeper.! He was a member of the Board of Schepens in 1659, 1662, 1663, 
1665, 1673, and president of the board in 1674. "On the 1st of March, 
1660, Aert Anthonissen Middagh, Tennis Gysberts Bogart, Jean Le Clerc, 
Gerrit Hendrick Backer, Philip Barchstoel, Christina Cappoens, Jacob 
Kip, and Jons Rapalje, all residents of the Waal-boght neighborhood, peti- 
tioned the Director for permission to form a village ' on the margin of the 
river between the lands of said Bogart and Kip, so that,' as they expressed 
it, ' we may be in sight of the Manhatans, or Fort Amsterdam.' The 
position selected was probably the elevated point of land which jutted into 
the river about the foot of South Fourth Street, in the present Eastern Dis- 
trict of Brooklyn, and which was known in the ancient time as the ' Keike' 
or * Lookout.' "J There is no evidence, remarks the learned historian of 
Brooklyn, that Jacob Kip ever resided on the lands above referred to, and 
"it was probably owing to his desire to improve the value of his real estate, 
by securing the establishment of a village thereon, that this petition was 
made," and through his influence with the authorities, was granted. 

In early times some member of the Kip family — was it Jacob or his 
father ? — obtained a patent for a farm of 150 acres, on the East River, on 
what is still known as Kip's Bay. It is said that Jacob Kip in 1655, tne 
year after his marriage, erected on this farm a house which was rebuilt in 
1696, and was, for a short time during the Revolution, Washington's head- 
quarters. § It stood upon the line of [East] 35th Street, and was demol- 
ished in 185 1. His house in the city was built in 1657, and situated in 
the present Exchange Place. He owned a number of city houses and lots, 
and in 1665 resided in the present Broad Street, near Exchange Place, 
and was there probably as late as 1674.ll In 1686 he was living " Beyond

the Fresh Water," the Kip's Bay farm doubtless being the place alluded 

The following paper, dated 1657 (?), imperfect and unexecuted, gives an 
interesting description of a Dutch house of that period : u Conditions and 
terms on which Jacob Kip, proposes to sell publicly, to the highest bidder, 
his house, kitchen, hen or hog yard, and lot lying in the city of [New] 
Amsterdam, over against the house of Heer Oloff Stevense [Van Cortland], 
as the same is occupied by him. The house two and thirty feet long and 
twenty feet broad, inclosed with thick planks and a glazed pantile roof, has 
a garret and floor, cellar walled up three, four or five feet with stone, and 
has a brick chimney in the front room, also a shop, the partition walls of 
bricks, the inner room built up with brick all around {rondtom), bedstead, 
counting house, and larder therein ; besides the aforesaid house, there is a 
kitchen eight or nine feet wide and seventeen or eighteen feet long, on the 
side of the house, with a brick chimney, in use by him, together with a hen 
or hog yard in the rear, and the place paved with bricks, and an apple 
tree therein, also a common gangway on the west side of the house six feet 
wide, and a common well, and what more is thereon and fast in earth and 

nailed, except the andirons {lia?uiizer) and hearth stone "f 

This house and lot was probably situated in the present Stone Street. 

Jacob Kip married March 8, 1654, Maria dau. of Dr. Johannes De La t 
Montagne and .Rachel Monjour. The record of their marriage states that 
she was from Amsterdam. She was born Jan. 26, 1637, at sea off the 
island of Madeira, on the voyage of her parents to New Netherland.J Her 
father, born in 1592, was a Huguenot physician — a man of great and 
varied learning: — who was. soon after his arrival here, appointed by Gov. 
Kieft a member of the Council, in which office he was continued by Gov. 
Stuyvesant, until the 28th of Sept., 1656, when he was appointed Vice- 
director at Fort Orange (Albany). Jacob Kip died about the year 1690, 
and the last notice found of his widow is on the 21st May, 1701, at which 
date she was a sponsor at the baptism of Maria dau. of Dirck Hooglant. 

They had issue :

New York, and m; Sept. 4, 1681, Catharina, dau. of Dr. Hans Kierstede § 
and Sara Roelofs. He died in 1704, leaving his wife surviving him.

§ Dr. Hans Kierstede from Maegdenburg (perhaps Magdeburg, the capital of the province of Saxony) 
was one of the earliest practising physicians end surgeons settled in New Amsterdam, and came here with 
Gov. William Kieft in March, 1638. He m. June 29. 1642, Sara Roelofs, born in Amsterdam, dau. of Rce- 
lof Jansen and Anneke Jans of Trinity Church celebrity. His wife is said to have been more proficient in 
the Indian language than any other person in the colony, and in May, 1664, acted as interpreter in the great 
treaty made at New Amsterdam between Gov. Stuyvesant and the neighboring Indian tribes. Having 
often acted in that capacity, she was presented with a large tract of land on the west siue cf the North 
River, by Oritany, the chief of the Hackinsack and Tappan Indians (Bioadhead's-Hist. N. V., 1. p. 731.) 

Dr. Kierstede died about -1667, and his widow m. Sept. 1, 1669, Cornelius Van Borsuni, of the Hrootclyn
